Michael Williams visited the old Mumford High building on Detroit’s northwest side several times this summer to watch demolition crews slowly take it apart.
The building was 63 years old, in disrepair and the brick was an odd shade of “sweet” powered blue. But its demise was like watching someone he grew up with get carried away, lifeless.
Other alumni stopped, too, to reminisce. And to crawl through construction barriers to swipe a souvenir brick from the rubble.
“It was like a reunion,” said Williams, 51, a 1979 Mumford graduate.
Williams found a safer way to preserve the memories of old school buildings. He created “School Shirt Shop,” a website that sells alumni posters, T-shirts and plaques engraved with the images of their closed or demolished alma maters.
