“one: on Toledo Road, just north of Nortline Road. topo. two: in Wyandotte just south of Southgate.”
The addresses you give for both of these drive-ins seem a little wonky to me. The Michigan was located on Dix/Toledo (US 25), just north of Eureka, not north of Northline Road. The topo has it correctly located.
The Fort George was located at 16300 Fort Street in Southgate. Basically, if you crossed the street, you were in Wyandotte, but the drive-in was in Southgate. It’s easiest to see on this map:
Basically, the drive-in was located on the curved bit of Fort Street in the southeast corner of the city. It was on the west side of the street.
