Numerous early postcards show the River Rouge in West Dearborn around where Michigan Avenue crossed it.
These postcards of the main branch of the Rouge were likely taken either a short distance south of Michigan Avenue or in the vicinity of Ford’s Fair Lane mansion.
These postcard images of the Rouge taken around 1910 were shot just east of Brady St near the current Dearborn train station. The current westbound lanes of Michigan Avenue run where the River Rouge is shown in these images. Visible to the right of the images is the original routing of Michigan Avenue.
