ORIGINAL DETROIT OPERA HOUSE photo picture print photography for sale. This is an extremely rate photo of the ORIGINAL Detroit Opera House in about 1896. This entire building and all of its contents burned to the ground on Oct. 7, 1897. It was rebuilt and opened up as The Detroit Opera House. It was located in Campus Martius about where Compuware currently stands. The photograph is slightly 'soft', though would still print fine in larger sizes. To the left side of this OLD ORIGINAL DETROIT OPERA HOUSE photo picture print for sale we can see the Soldiers and Sailors Monument that is still at Campus Martius. Several people are seen walking in the middle of the streets wearing their fine suites, dresses and hats. It is one of the earliest Detroit photographs in this collection and a rare historic image indeed.

The quality of the Jan Kaulins' photographic prints is much higher than we can show within limits of this web site. Slight tonal changes and blurring around the areas of strong contrast are a result of the JPEG compression process, and are not part of the high quality originals.
