  1. Hey, just discovered your blog and really enjoying it. I also grew up in Flint and took this photo of the old house for sale. It’s not Detroit. It’s Jane Avenue in Flint’s old East Side. The house has since been demolished, but I used it for the cover of my book about Flint: “Teardown: Memoir of a Vanishing City.”

    1. Sorry I didn’t give you credit. I grew up in Flint also. Ainsworth High School then MSU. Lasted a whole 3 months working for Buick Motor; grad school seemed much more pleasant. Left in 1980.
