I decided to make a few adjustments to both lists following a research of a 1975 Wyandotte directory at Bacon Memorial District Library today. This directory (or what I was able to go through with my limited time) listed three A&Ps (Riverview, 131 Elm and 3859 West Jefferson in Ecorse), the Wyandotte Danny's and two Krogers (Wyandotte and Grosse Ile). Further visits to that library will wait until our local weather warms up.

To reflect that this year is now 2020, I've changed some of the latter columns, and added a new 1980 column as well.

Finally, Southgate locations are now listed in the Wyandotte sheet rather than Lincoln Park's, to reflect the fact that some 1950's Wyandotte directories listed addresses in the part of then-Ecorse Township that later became part of Southgate.
