Fisher Building

One of the remarkable historic building in Detroit, that I hadn’t seen so far, is the Fisher Building. This changed yesterday when Thomas and Daniel were in town for a visit and Andrew gave us a tour of some nice historic places in Detroit.

The Fisher Building is located north of Midtown and while I was expecting a somewhat empty and unused building, it is hosting quite a few smaller shops and coffee places as well as the Fisher Theatre. This would be a good place for an little more focused photo shoot some time soon.

Fun fact from Wikipedia:

The building’s hipped roof was originally covered with gold leaf tiles, but during World War II these tiles were covered in asphalt because it was feared that the reflective surface would attract enemy bombers.
