Detroit Croq(et) City

~Lauren Ruhland, MCPP intern

A bunch of Detroit devotees of the steampunk aesthetic (think Victorian sci-fi design) decided to hold a post-apocalyptic afternoon croquet match.  This flickr album features the gang hanging around the long-abandoned Packard plant in all their Edwardian finery.  The photos seem to have been taken in the summer of 2005; since then, Detroit has lost more than 30,000 residents.  That makes the setting even eerier.

Hat tip to BoingBoing.

  1. Hey, that’s cool! Every time I start feeling a little cool I get slapped upside the head with awareness of people who are cooler than me. :rolleyes:
