Many of the pictured facilities are last ditch efforts to generate cash in the form of "hand car wash" which IMO are in no way considered professional carwashes. IMO more than half of the pictures were never professional carwashes, but for the cost of a painted sign, were abondoned other-purpose buildings. Mark

I think it is worthy to note the photos that David took & shared were taken by someone who is actually located in the Detroit Metro Area & who was probably motivated by a deep concern for the systemic issues that contribute in a too overwhelming & negative of a way.

Yes, I agree. I wrote a nice lead-in article about the rise, and fall and gradual rebirth of Detroit to go along with the photo essay.
