Reuter, Erland.

MY EARLY LIFE.

Privately printed (Detroit?) 1992 Illustr, 9 x 6, wraps, 268 pp. Light wear else good/very good. Erland Reuter (1900-?) writes about his growing up in Philadelphia and his adult life in Detroit. His accounts are very detailed and give you a good feel for the time period. Among his reminiscences of Philadelphia are trading baseball cigar cards, attending baseball games, the local shopkeepers and their shops, courting young ladies, Prohibition and how easy it wa to get liquor. From 1926 to 1928, he worked in Detroit at the Budd Wheel Company and Michigan Steel Casting. He then went back to Philadelphia but eventually returned to Detroit where he spent the rest of his life and worked again for the Budd Wheel Company. And, as in his Philadelphia reminiscences, the Detroit memories are equally detailed. Information on the Budd Wheel Company and what it produced; visiting friends at the Book Cadillac Hotel, picnicking at Belle Isle, shopping at the Broadway Market and J.L. Hudson, the various houses he and his family lived in, the lot he bought on McKinley in Grosse Pointe Park in 1937 where he had his first house built. A good history and an enjoyable memoir. FIRST ED.
