Ford Motor Co.’s Plant – Ford, Ontario

A long time ago, this site began life back in 2002 as a site featuring old postcard views of the city. Over the years, the site evolved and some of the older posts that were done in the pre-blog format were lost. So it occurred to me, after getting an email form a long time reader, that many of these card that were posted long ago, are pretty much like all new material. So over the next little while I’ll be posting some of these old postcards here and there…

So today is a good view from the water of the massive plant that once occupied the waterfront east of Hiram Walker’s. The postcard dates to about 1925, and still lists Ford, Ontario as the location. Ford City became East Windsor in 1929, and then part of Windsor in 1935.
