Thompson Home (Formerly Thompson Home For Old Ladies)--Detroit MI


This 1884 Queen Anne structure is an early work by noted local architect George D. Mason. The home was established as a care facility for older women by philanthropist Mary Thompson. The building is now owned by Wayne State University and houses the School of Social Work. This is where Al Acker works...

Dan, thanks for the posting of the photo of the Thompson Home. I've long admired the place and am jealous of Al for being able to call it his workplace. Long may it be preserved!

I posted this automatically from Flickr. Flickr has a "post to blogger" (or some such) feature where you can just press a button to post a public picture to a blog such as this. So I posted the pic of Al's building here as something of a test...
