Five newly discovered photos found in a closet have been saved from the trash bin by an astute Detroit Board of Education member and sent to fellow Fordite, Keith Thode, from the class of 1961.  A few of these photo's have never been seen before. These large size photos include the musical ensembles, band, orchestra and choir  from 1959 through 1961 at Christmas and Spring Concerts. Another photo, taken from the roof of the school, shows 11th and 12th graders standing on the front lawn of the school.  Maybe, you are in the photos. You can view all five "full size" photos in the Photo Gallery.
