  Description: The 1950s, 60s, and 70s saw some of the most defining moments in our nation’s history, and Detroit remained at the forefront during these decades of change. A companion book to Historic Photos of Detroit, 
Historic Photos of Detroit in the 50s, 60s, and 70s follows life, government, and events throughout Motor City’s history, from its booming population, pro-sports reputation, and thriving automobile industry in the 50s; to the birth of Motown Records and the Detroit riot in the 60s; to a declining population, oil crisis, and expanding music scene in the 70s. This book illustrates the participants, riots, triumphs, and tragedies of this period through the lens of hundreds of historic 
photographs, published in striking black and white.
