Wrecked In Detroit - 13 Jan 2014
Detroit, also known as the Motor City, is the historic hub of automobile manufacturing in the United States. A federal judge in December 2013 formally declared the city bankrupt but it won court approval to exit bankruptcy last November. Once the proud symbol of U.S. industrial strength, Detroit fell on hard times after decades of population loss, rampant debt and financial mismanagement left it struggling to provide basic services to residents. The Detroit car show, formally the North American International Auto Show, is being held for the 26th year and represents the turn in the city’s fortune with 2014 being the best year for U.S. car sales since 2006. As a look at Detroit's turbulent recent past Reuters photographer Joshua Lott photographed old or damaged cars in the streets of the former automobile industry giant.
