August 2019 I Spy

by Sally Bjork

From the September, 2019 issue

August's "I Spy is the old car dealership on the 500 block of East Washington," writes Michael McGraw. The section shown is "behind the Michigan Theater," adds Gabe DellaVecchia. It was "recently occupied by Name Brand Tattoo," next to the Camera Mall.

The building "was built in 1926 as a Dodge Bros. dealership," writes Susan Wineberg, and over the years, many other dealerships occupied the space. "My father used to sell Ramblers there [when it was] Nye Motor Sales in the late 1950's early 1960's," shares Mary Gordon. In later years, adds Wineberg, the building housed Talbot's and Laura Ashley. "I bought my wedding dress there!" she exclaims.

The quaint 1920s commercial building with its terracotta shingles--along with the four houses to the east--will soon be demolished. They are "giving way to yet another drab architecturally bankrupt student high-rise," laments Daniel Chapman. Name Brand Tattoo has already relocated to Main St.; according to MLive, the developer will assist Camera Mall in locating a new space.

We received just eight correct entries for August's I Spy. Our random drawing winner is Marie Krull, who will be taking her $25 gift certificate to Treasure Mart.
