More Detroit art and architecture.

The Detroit News Building. Another Albert Kahn original, and just about 200 yards to the west of the Doubletree Fort Shelby. It is studded with relief artwork, and I have no idea of what it is supposed to symbolize. [UPDATE: The explanation of the symbolism can be found here (pp. 24-25), courtesy of intrepid commenter and friend of the blog Fuinseiog.]

The Weston Book Cadillac Hotel. More about that later, when I get the

opportunity to get up close and personal.

My attempt at an artsy shot, looking down the street at the WBC.
