Ann Arbor Observed by Grace Shackman
Book DescriptionTwenty-five years ago, Grace Shackman began to document the history of Ann Arbor's buildings, events, and people in the "Ann Arbor Observer". Soon Shackman's articles, which depicted all aspects of Ann Arbor, became much-anticipated regular stories. Readers turned to her illuminating mini-histories when they wanted to know about a particular landmark, personality, business, structure, organization, or other story from Ann Arbor's past. Packed with photographs from Ann Arbor of yesteryear and present day, "Ann Arbor Observed" compiles the best of Shackman's articles in one book divided into eight sections: public buildings and institutions; the University of Michigan; transportation; industry; downtown Ann Arbor; recreation and culture; social fabric and communities; and architecture. For long-time residents, Ann Arbor expatriates, University of Michigan alumni, and visitors alike, "Ann Arbor Observed" provides a rare bygone glimpse of a town with a rich and varied history.
