This was the Camp home, owned by the family which operated the Camp Corset Company. They were world travelers, and kept a trunk on a landing in the stairway to their second floor. It was filled with objects which they had picked up during their travels. From that trunk they would produce prizes for the winners of bridge parties which they would host for friends.

Jackson Corset Co. was located in the building on the corner of Washington and Mechanic, which later grew into the S.H. Camp Co., then Camp International. The building is still there and was made into condo apts. The parking lot is actually on the corner, while the building faces Washington.

St. Joseph Home for Boys
My brother and I were there together for almost eight years in the years 1956 to 1964. My name is Tim Toney and Bill is my brother. We were there with some other brothers; the Brooks, Fred, Joe, and Harry also the Eva brothers with Ron and Roger one ball. I remember a boy named Yost, Fields, Sister Rita (she choked me), Sister Arcadia (she beat me good in the dining room in front of all the other boys), Sister Jean (Mean, she might have been the one that beat me).

There use to be two or three more floors to this building. It had a mansard roof. Somewhere in the 50's or 60's they took the upper floors off. Not sure why they would do that?

Isn't this the city home of Ella Sharp at the corner of Michigan and First Street?

Photograph of house and Cadillac
This is a beautiful photograph. It could easily be the front cover of a Cadillac brochure from the seventies!

Railroad yard building
Looks to be the railroad building that burned down around the mid 70's. It was located on page ave south of the railroad tracks behind now the Blue Moon Resturant (the old junction resturant or papa ray's).
