Portrait Studios of Detroit's Polonia: The Face of Polish Immigration

The Hamtramck Historical Museum is proud to host this display of photos taken by the classic photographers who recorded everyday life and special occasions in the Polish community a century ago.  Pieronek, Smart Set, Moderne and many other neighborhood photographers recorded the people, places and events in the old Poletown neighborhood of Detroit and Hamtramck, providing us with an invaluable insight into the past. The show is made possible by a grant from the Polish Mission of the Orchard Lake Schools. The photos are on display at Orchard Lake through November, and will be at the Hamtramck Historical Museum, Nov. 1 to 22.
