One of the things that's always frustrated me about Ypsilanti is that it tends to see itself more in terms of how it relates to Ann Arbor than how it stands as its own, proud city. Honestly, is there another town that suffers as much of an inferiority complex as Ypsi does vis-a-vis it's big brother to the west?
Wait ... what was my point? It doesn't matter.
Wystan Stevens is Ann Arbor's unofficial historian and is a wealth of knowledge about anything and everything having to do with Washtenaw County's past. Check out his Flickr photos, which, if nothing else, show that student binge drinking has changed little over the past century or so.
