Ann Arbor in AADL Digital Gallery
Twenty-five years ago Grace Shackman began to document the history of Ann Arbor's buildings, events, and people in the Ann Arbor Observer.
She has written about Schwaben Halle, Ann Arbor's trolly car line and the early movie theaters. Now you can search a rich selection of over 130 of Grace's articles or browse by topic right from the Ann Arbor Observer: Then & Now, presented by the Ann Arbor District Library and the Ann Arbor Observer. You can also view an accompanying image gallery.
And there is more at Ann Arbor District Library local history page.
Here are some of the links:
Here is an article "to stir some memories" from AnnArbor.com.
