Through the development of my analysis I then created six drawings which illustrate the connection between todays presence and yesterday’s forgotten elements.  Hand drawings are from what I found on my movement through site which consist of warped signs, exposed manhole covers and cut off I-beams etc. These then formed a connection with the old plans of the train station which were acquired through the local archive systems.

A view of the Union Depot Train Station on the corner of Third and Fort Street, ten days after the last train left and the station was closed, Detroit, Michigan. The Romanesque Revival structure was built of red sandstone between 1891 - 1893 by James Stewart & Co. and was demolished in January of 1974. * Photographer’s Note: "The tracks that led into the station that looked like a castle. A marvelous building that many old Detroiters will always remember.” (photo via Detroiturbex.com)
