Disembarking On The Detroit River In 1827


We [Friend Palmer, et al] landed at Jones’ dock, between Griswold and Shelby streets, on a fine day, about ten o’clock in the morning and all walked up to the residence of my uncle, Thomas Palmer, corner of Jefferson avenue and Griswold street. There were no public conveyances in those days. Thomas Palmer lived over his store, as did many of the merchants doing business here at that time. [Source]
