Back in May, I wrote a post about the restoration of the Schofield Building. The terra-cotta-faced skyscraper had long been covered by a steel and glass facade. The current owners are in the process of restoring the exterior. Unfortunately, at the time, I was unable to provide a good image of what the building used to look like.
A few days ago, I came across this image, a photograph of Euclid Avenue made on an 8x10 glass plate negative, from the Detroit Publishing Company Photograph Collection in the Library of Congress.
The Schofield building is seen to the far left in this photograph. The Library of Congress has been kind enough to scan the negative at ultra-high resolution, so if you want to see more detail, click through to their website for the really detailed version.
