Photos Of An Abandoned Detroit School

Detroit has undergone through many changes. The city went through a tremendous population boom and then suffered a rapid decline of population entailing many buildings lying abandoned. In order to increase awareness about the drastic changes the city suffered in social and economic front, the folks behind Detroiturbex decided to give then-and-now photos of Lewis Cass Technical High School. After taking shots of each and every room of the abandoned school, they superimposed the photos with photos of different activities such as dancing, playing etc. These photos show how the life used to be at that time.
