This is how close the crew was to each other when we were all staying in Detroit. Behind this old brick building that once housed Mary Lee’s Candy Studio is the Greektown Hotel. We were all scattered throughout downtown but we were all waling distance form each other’s crash pads! I absolutely love when old brick buildings leave the remnants of the old business signage on the side of the building. It’s not longer a candy studio.
Old Time MARY LEE Candies – Detroit Studio.
I did not take this shot but found this particular image on line. I wanted to post it as it shows a bit of the front of the building.
I absolutely love when signs painted on sides of buildings fade into them like this. I also love when a candy company is referred to as a “Detroit Studio”.
I wish this had been my view looking out of my Greektown Hotel window instead of the multiple parking lots it hovered over. Then again, I would’ve been jonesing for candy the whole time (instead of the Lafayette Coney Dogs a couple blocks down).
I wonder what’s in this building now?
I love those kind of ghost images too. There is one window here in Alameda and they left up the “Ex Lax” advertising from a million years ago…!
If you ever have a chance to shoot the fading Ex Lax building ad I’d love to see it. What a product to leave out for the sun to have its way with!
Rusty, are we going to get shots of the Ex-Lax ad?
Yes, soon. Maybe later today…
wow this is so beautiful…i love the building itself too…the brick is just gorgeous!
