The City of Detroit has continued to suffer population and economic decline since the late 50's. Under harsh conditions the liquor stores have survived in many areas where there are few other choices for purchasing the necessities of life. They serve a role that includes food, banking and telecommunications services. They represent a unique form of modern Detroit architecture and communication art.
