Color postcard from 1932 showing the Penobscot Building and neighboring buildings on Griswold Street in Detroit, Michigan. The Greater Penobscot Building (the tower) was built in 1928, designed by Wirt C. Rowland for Smith, Hinchman and Grylls. It is connected to the original Penobscot Building (1905) and on the same block as the Penobscot addition (1916). The tower, at 47 stories, was the eighth tallest building in the world when it was completed, and the largest outside New York and Chicago. To the left of the Penobscot Building is the Ford Building, built in 1909. On the right is the Dime Building, built in 1912. Both the Ford and the Dime Buildings were designed by Daniel Burnham.
