A far cry from the days of the covered sidewalk, this block of W. Michigan Ave., in Ypsilanti (bottom) [this photo] now resembles the main street of any typical American community. The wooden sidewalk covering "disappeared" mysteriously and prematurely one night shortly after the turn of the century, allegedly torn down by a group of spirited local youths.
