Part Two: Abandoned Music Halls, Ballrooms, Theatres, Movie Palaces: Urban Ghosts
the music room | Flickr - Photo Sharing! the music room Another great find in the Indiana countryside: an abandoned schoolhouse, mostly boarded up but there was one window open into the basement level, that held this ghost of a piano, with records strewn all over the floor, under a bare light bulb. Amazing.
Returning to Detroit, the Vanity and Grande ballrooms that served the east and west of the city respectively were models of elegance and notoriety. Both designed by architect Charles Agree in the late 1920s, the Vanity Ballroom enjoyed the reputation of “Detroit’s most beautiful dance rendezvous” while the Grande became a famous countercultural hub before closing in 1972.
