The Photography of

Phil Cherner

In addition to his law practice, Phil Cherner is an internationally recognized photographer. Some of his work was recently on display at the Festimatge 2012 exhibition in Calella, Spain.

The Army was still patrolling when the 1967 photos were taken. The street sign tells us the intersection is Lysander and Grand River, and on the upper right of the building facade there's an address. In 2007 we stumbled about trying to find the intersection. Eventually we discovered that not only was the Tyme Furniture building gone, but Lysander Street had been removed as well (or was grown over by weeds). The fire hydrant had been replaced but the distinctive street lamps remain. A 1967 map confirmed that Lysander once intersected with Grand River at this location.
