Sunshine and blue skies just before our 7 pm tour began. Foreboding gray skies and pouring rain 1.5 hours into the tour. Penobscot Building reminds me of Rudolph.

Growing up in the 1950s and 1960s during the Cold War, kids might pretend that the structures at the neighborhood park were missiles to protect us from those pesky Russians. Some kids didnt have to pretend! Peppered around Southeast Michigan were 16 Nike missile bases to protect the Arsenal of Democracy should the need arise. Young Patriots Park in Riverview was one of them and still has one of the missiles (disarmed) on display. There were also bases at Selfridge AFB, around what is now Metro Airport, as well as in Carlton/Newport, Grosse Ile, Utica, Algonac/Marine City, Ft. Wayne, River Rouge Park, Detroit City Airport, Franklin/Bingham, Commerce/Union Lake, and Auburn Hills. Many of the sites have no visible remains,  but several have quite a bit. At Carlton (as of a few years ago) the guard shacks and numerous decaying buildings could still be viewed from Newport Road west of Telegraph. Did anyone live near or visit any of the others?
