    This photograph is of the southside of the 100 block of West Grand River Avenue, Howell, Michigan, and was taken as part of documentation for the R/UDAT Study, 1984.  In view taken from the intersection of Grand River Avenue and Michigan Avenue are cars, The Family Restaurant, Schafer's House of Music, Garland's Mens Apparel, Suttton's Hardware, Shippy's Paint, and the First Presbyterian Church. 

    In 1983, the Howell Area Chamber of Commerce applied for a R/UDAT (Regional/Urban Design Assistance Team) study, an American Institute of Architects program that brought a team of professionals to the city for a four-day period to study Howell's downtown, its ability to compete for regional shopping, and to make recommendations for improvements to re-vitalize the city.  The team, in 1984, during the study took photographs, interviewed people, held forums, and in the end provided an outline of strategies.
