It’s no secret that Ann Arbor is an attractive prospect for real estate developers looking to build everything from apartments to athletic facilities (e.g. the $200+ million football stadium renovation). Nowadays, it’s definitely not uncommon to hear townies talk about how much the city has changed over the years, but it may be tough to picture what the place looked like beforehand if you’re new to town.
