Thunderbird Inn Offers
Country Quiet Near City

Only minutes away from
bustling Detroit, and within
easy driving distance from the
north and west suburbs of the
greater metropolitan area, the
Thunderbird Inn has many at-
tractions for its visitors.
Its relative seclusion from
the frenzied haunts of the city
make it ideal for quiet business-
men's luncheons, pleasant fam-
ily dinners on Sunday and as
a setting for honeymooners.
The Thunderbird Inn is lo-
cated at 14707 Northville, just
200 yards south of the end of
Five Mile, in Plymouth, Mich.
John Dodge, manager of the
Thunderbird, extends an invi-
tation to stop by any day or
evening of the week.
Dancing is to the music of
Don Pablo's orchestra.
