Detroit Recording Studios - VOGUE Studio

I was just looking at the Fortune Records Soulful Detroit Tour which is part of this forum. It was stated that the owners of Fortune Records worked out initially of their home at 11839 12th Street and rented time at local studios VOGUE and United Sound Systems.

What does anyone know about the VOGUE studios? Is it possible that some Motown recordings may have been made there as there were at USS? I never heard of the VOGUE studios.

Thanks for any input on this studio.
