After the historic fire of Detroit in 1805, a new cityplan was designed with avenues radiating from the centre. Michigan Avenue became one of the 'spokes' and was continued by Ford Road. This Ford Road is a tribute to the founding father of the automotive industry in Detroit: William Ford, the father of Henry Ford. As a tribute to this endeavour and being interested if it would be possible to 'sample' this city in decline, I made a cross section of Detroit in photographs on my rented yellow bike cycling from the city centre westwards alongside the Ford Road. Detroit shows itself as in annual rings on a cut tree: these are the 'inner images' of Detroit.
