Well flicker is back couple hours off line for upgrades turned into a day and a half!
Here is the other version of the wooden nickle.


At one time the city was known as the city of roses, due to the fact that there were a number of very large green houses and they supplied the florist trade with roses. Now they are subdivisions and vacant lots. Historically, Mount Clemens' largest industry for more than 100 years, from 1873 to 1974, was tourism related to the mineral baths, drawn from springs that were scattered throughout the city. Such mineral baths were very popular and were tourist destinations. At the peak of the industry, the city had 11 bathhouses and several hotels related to this trade. The first bathhouse was built in 1873 and was known as "The Original"; it was located on the corner of Jones and Water streets. The bathhouse burned in 1883 but it was rebuilt even larger the following year to accommodate the crowds of customers. Due to the smell of the mineral water you could smell the town before your ever made it there

Picked these up at a yard sale this morning -





The Chilkat Restaurant apparently still exists, albeit now incorporating a bakery and serving Thai cuisine.



I dating myself, but I attended a high school in Canoga Park, and at that time Topanga Plaza was a really big deal. The signature architectural feature was the kitschy Rain Fountain, which had oil droplets running down from the ceiling along clear filaments (you may recall that neoclassical home versions of such were also popular back then). But for the life of me, I don't remember the Coin and Stamp Mart there. But here's a vintage photo of the Rain Fountain.
