[Snapshot Survey of a Detroit-area Trailer Park]

Eminem meets Ed Ruscha: the vernacular photographic survey of a likely Detroit-area trailer park, circa-1966. Images lack any notation or explicit identification, though visible mailboxes and license plates (as well as area of acquisition by us) suggest Detroit or its environs. Likewise, the motivation behind their capture eludes us though, the majority of prints appear to have been shot through the window of a passing car. A stirring group of images of a mobile home community at mid-Century.

[Photography] . [Snapshot Survey of a Detroit-area Trailer Park]. [Detroit, Michigan]: 1966. 20 color snapshot photographs. Loose. Kodacolor prints. Each date stamped: "OCT 66" at left print margins. Each approximately 5" x 3 1/2." 2 prints with some moderate creasing, the balance about very good or better.
