Surreal Before And After Photos Of Post-Industrial Detroit

It’s one thing to imagine what the ruins that now litter parts of Detroit looked like in their heyday. It’s another thing to perfectly capture what all those places once were.

Photo project DetroitUrbex has paired photos showing derelict edifices with ones showing what those structures looked like when Detroit was bustling.

The results are haunting. We first saw this at Motor City Muckraker.
