Doors and windows. Day 102/365

The door to the former Jam Handy Organization studio in Detroit. Many thousands of training, industrial, and promotional films were made here in the 30's-60's. I went inside for a Detroit Film Festival showing of three short films produced by JHO in 1936, 1948 and 1958. Wonderful slices of Americana.

I have a personal connection to this place - my grandfather worked there in the late 1040s-early 1950's as a commercial artist. Pretty cool seeing it today.

The building was built in 1921 and used by the Jam Handy Organization from 1932-mid-70's (ish).
