Forgotten Detroit
Book-Cadillac Hotel


"In keeping with the underlying idea of the Washington boulevard development providing that this street should become Detroit's most exclusive retail shopping section, the ground floor of the Book-Cadillac is given over mostly to stores and shops. There are nineteen spaces for this purpose, including one for a great modern drug store on the corner of Washington and Michigan. There is an arcade extending through the entire building from East to West. This has entrances to all the stores and shops and also to the hotel's coffee shop, which is on the North side of the building."
