Postcards from Detroit

Ed.’s note: The following are photographs of some of the 19th century mansions in Brush Park, in downtown Detroit. In recent years, the area has undergone some revitalization. But with the American auto industry nearing complete collapse, such images may again suggest the future of Detroit and its environs.

They are taken from a series called “Bambis and Dollhouses,” by Cibele Vieira, a Brazilian-born photographer now living in Bushwick.
