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.
