There's no doubt that downtown Detroit has undergone some significant changes over the last several years. What used to be akin to a ghost town is now showing signs of a returned vibrancy that we had not seen since long before the global recession. Now with newly opened parks, cute boutiques, and a brand new skyscraper on its way, Detroit is beginning to look more like the crown jewel it was always meant to be.
That's why Kramer Design Group has designed these ten collectible vintage-style postcards which show off some of the beautiful architectural design of our fair city.

You can head to Curbed to see the full collection, but be sure to head downtown to hot spots like Urban Bean, Queens Bar, Ashe Supply, Roasting Plant, and more to collect these unique Detroit keepsakes!
