als of Belle Isle, baseball
packed them in and Frank
Navin had his way of dealing
with an overflow crowd at
Navin Field, home of the De-
troit Tigers. Farmers brought
their wares to market on
Cadillac Square, people got
away from the city heat on
the steamer bound for Bob-
Lo. The ice fountain was an
annual spectacle of crystal
splendor on Washington
Avenue. Schneider's Chop
House was a favorite re-
ndezvous of politicians. Con-
sidine's on Monroe was the
most famous saloon in the
long history of Detroit. The
hungry and thirsty went to
Gies's oyster bar on Monroe
after the show at the Detroit
Opera House or at the Tem-
ple Theater.
"Johnny Colquhoun's lunch
wagon stood on Fort Street
serving hot dogs to the great
and near great. Other wagons
caught the nocturnal trade
and they all got rich. Dinner
at the Tuller Hotel was a big
event and so was a visit to
Electric Park, a gaudy
amusement enterprise near
the Belle Isle bridge.
There were 13 saloons in
the single short block where
the Free Press stood. Across
the street, the McIntosh dis-
played the best free lunch in
town. A huge roast of beef
went into action every day at
4. A glass of beer brought a
pan-gravy drenched dividend
that paid many a struggling
doctor's°, lawyer's or reporter's
way.
Edward Stair, owner of the
Detroit Free Press and the De-
troit Journal, invested in the
Whitney Grand and changed
its name to the Garrick
legitimate theater. The Gris-
wold House Cafe was a hot
night spot with an orchestra
playing until well after mid-
night.

"In 1917, Detroiters were
registering for the army. The
Detroit Liberty Band was
formed and played in Cadil-
lac Square. One of the num-
bers the band played best
was a song by Detroiter
Richard Whiting, Till We
Meet Again. For the young
composer, Detroit was a
magic world with its river
boats, ferries, lake steamers,
Wayne Gardens and Temple
Theater.
"Blind pigs closed in on
downtown Detroit, spread
into the residential districts
and into the suburbs. Space
in cheaper apartment build-
ings was used for beer flats.
Wine, women and song were
offered for entertainment.
"Liquor was delivered and
bottles appeared under the
table of night spots where
booze was never served but
proprietors accommodated
with set-ups. These included
such places as the Oriole Ter-

Nationally known for serving 4-H Prize Blue Ribbon
Steak and Chops. Finest Seafood and Liquors.
