A piece of history went up in smoke yesterday as the Piquette Avenue Plant in Detroit burnt to the ground. A once mighty plant that was home to Ford's historic Model T and Studebaker's plant before they moved to their South Bend home in 1928. The fire was more devastating for the few businesses that were located in the big brick warehouse including a local family meat wholesaler. Detroit is in the midst of trying to preserve the remnants of "The Motor City" and this is one more blow to that effort.
