"Saddest Fade" on WhatWasThere

The William Livingstone House, constructed in 1893, commonly called Slumpy, was a French Renaissance house located in Detroit's Brush Park. William Livingstone selected Eliot Street in Brush Park and hired architect Albert Kahn who was working for the George Mason-Zachariah Rice firm. When he obtained this commission – presumably with Mason’s help – Kahn was only 22 or 23 years old and had just returned from spending 1891 in Europe studying the classical architecture of the Old World.
