It includes some history, several maps, photographs by Eck Stanger, Edward J. Vaughn, and Patrick Mullaly, and many architectural drawings of residences in this area by Milton Kemnitz. Most of the structures in "Old German Town" date from 1850-1914. Later structures in adjacent areas date mostly from the 1920s through the 1960s. The Old West Side, Ann Arbor, Michigan can be found at the Ann Arbor District Library (call number R977.435 An).
