|The picture shows a view of all (4) 1972 Detroit Michigan Motown Records Company Building Photographs in this lot. These four photographs were found in an old photo album together. The two at the top are of the former Motown Recording Company. We are not sure if the other two are the same building or not, but the lower right one is marked on the back as follows:|
The photographs each measure 5'' x 3-1/2''. They appear to be in mint as made condition as pictured. Below here, for reference, is some information about the building's demolition in 2006:
''The Donovan Building was a 10 story building designed in 1922 by renowned architect Albert Kahn. The building was later occupied by Motown Records from 1968 to 1972. It was last occupied by JOWA Security before closing in 1974. The building was demolished in January 2006 because Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick said it was an eyesore for the visitors of the upcoming Super Bowl. The owner of the building, Cherrylawn Realty, agreed to the demolition and funded it. The demolition of the building, along with the adjacent Sanders Building, was completed in two weeks. Because of this time constraint, little was removed from the buildings before demolition. Items such as marble, documents, and architectural detailing were simply smashed to bits. On the day of the Super Bowl, the site was used for parking for as few as three tour buses.''
