Squint Shot 032312
After photographing a door in the east wall of the basement of the drug store, I turned toward the south wall. The ceiling is braced and this door was locked, but my thoughts were stretching overtime. If I can offer up some interesting rumors. A few residents have mentioned they have heard of a tunnel that used to be under Grand River avenue, connecting some of the storefronts from the northeast quadrant to the southeast block. There has never been any reference made to what era, and I've not come across anything about tunnels when Grand River was paved in 1924. But . . . the rumors are there and now there are doors in basement walls that give some credence. Especially once you check out the next few days of squint shots.
