My Dad Harvey Kresge Ebert was an industrial cafeteria designer (civil engineer by trade U of M 1934) of the famous Kresge lunch counters.
I loved going to the 7-Grand store in Redford on Saturday's for lunch

Those days are gone, never to return, good thing for photos, that's the only way us "old timers" can take a trip down memory lane. the Detroit we grew up with is long gone, it will be replaced with something that others will enjoy, those days are gone for us.
