Mappy Monday: Detroit, Michigan

Detroit inset. 1 December 1927. From Michigan State Highway Department & Rand McNally (15 April 1939). Official Michigan Highway Map. Lansing: Michigan State Highway Department. Public domain. Available from Wikimedia Commons.

This map of Detroit, Michigan was published as part of the Official Michigan Highway Map shortly before my maternal grandparents John and Margaret (Schneider) Boe moved to Detroit. My mother spent her earliest years in Detroit.

My great-grandfather's sister Anna Elizabeth Gatlin also lived in Detroit.
