Windsor Assembly

Today’s photo was sent along from a regular reader.

An interesting early aerial photo of the Windsor Assembly Plant. I’m unsure of the date on this one, but it’s probably from the mid to late 1930’s. The view is looking south from Walker Tecumseh Road. The photograph dates to before 1948 for sure, as there is no sign of the old Chrysler Office Building along Chrylser Centre Drive.

The photo of the plant, also matches the layout of the buildings as shown in the 1937 Fire Insurance Maps, above (plant 3) and below (plant 2).

Thanks for sending the photo in!
