A Detroit Historic Designation Advisory Board report posted on the city's website says that 1400 Woodward was constructed as the T. B. Rayl & Co. store, which sold sleds, ice skates, mantle pieces, tool chests and cutlery.

Another Dan Gilbert Acquisition
His Bedrock Real Estate Services LLC has purchased the "Eastern Hair & Wig Co." building at the corner of Woodward and Grand River.
Can't wait to hear about the future for this great location.
I am a CPA working in the healthcare industry by day, and an economist, writer, researcher, and blogger by any other time of the week. This blog will be about the uniqueness of the Detroit resurgence due to an inept and powerless local bureaucracy (government) that cannot possibly keep up with regulating the renaissance of entrepreneurial and community ventures. The lens through which I view things is very different from the mainstream, or even the scattered blogosphere. This will not be a standard "this is my life in Detroit" blog. Though, I will intersperse some of that stuff, along with my Detroit photography, to keep the blog varied and intellectually interesting.
