This would be a really interesting map to replicate today if the data existed. There are plenty of interesting maps on privately owned land and largest land owners, but a more comprehensive picture would be cool to see. With the rise of the Wayne County auction and renting in key areas of the city I wonder how much of the city is owned by people living within the city limits.
This map from William Bunge’s Detroit Geographical Expedition Field Notes II on School Decentralization.
