Thompson Home, Detroit

(Detroit, MI) I pass this beautiful Victorian building several times a week on my way to and from teaching at Wayne State University, and the Thompson Home's intriguing architectural stylings sometimes cause me to stop and gaze.

Built in 1884, the house was once a retirement home for wealthy widows, though today the building serves as a facility for WSU's School of Social Work. While I suspect that coffee makers are about the last item on your mind, the bills must somehow be paid in this era of hyper-capitalism.
