Mounted original b&w photograph of the John Oldani (?) saloon located at 568 Rivard, Detroit, Michigan.

Detroit nd (1880s) Photo is 6 x 4, mount is 10 x 8, photo is light w/minor chipping, mount is stained, soiled, spotted, creased, chipped, written in pencil on the reverse "Rivard cor Brews." Shown in the photo is a two-story frame house, saloon with large four-paned glass windows on the lower level and the residence above, two Voigt brewery signs on each corner of the building, three men somewhat well dressed posing in front. "Rivard cor Brews" would be "Rivard corner of Brewster" which is 568 Rivard, between Brewster and Wilkins. In the 1880s, the addresses listed for saloons on Rvard didn't go as high as "568". By 1889-90, Matthew Delker was listed as a saloon owner at this address (he had previously owned a saloon at 166 Prospect.) From 1899 to 1902 John Oldani was listed as owner. So it's possible that Delker may be in the photo, not Oldani, but further research will be needed to verify actual ownership. Really nice early Detroit business/saloon photo. Scarce.
