Map: Growth of Detroit in Pictograms



These fun pictograms come from “Detroit: a manual for Citizens” published by the Detroit Public Schools in 1958.

In the text it asks:

“Perhaps it will interest you to locate the year of your birth and notice how Detroit has grown in your lifetime.”

I’m not sure how many Detroiters are alive today that can still do that.
