"Cass Technical School was built in 1917 by architects William E. Higginbotham (1858-1923) and partner William G. Malcomson. They both designed many schools, churches and residential buildings throughout Detroit from 1894 to 1923. Albert Kahn Associates designed the modern addition which was completed in 1985. The school was damaged in a fire and abandoned in 2007."

► COLOR COMBINATIONS
As a general rule, dark inks go best with light ties and light inks play well with dark ties. Light with light and dark with dark can be subtle at best and invisible at worst, we'll contact you if it's a definite no-go. If you have any questions about whether or not your combination will work, contact us before you order!
