Map: Sanborn Fire Insurance Downtown Detroit 1904

Downtown Detroit in 1904 looks nothing like it does today besides a handful of landmark buildings, such as the County Building. Many of the parks remain the same Downtown, however West Park is now where the Rosa Parks Transit Center resides and Campus Martius has expanded considerably.
