Ford Powerhouse – 1935

Happy Friday once again. Today photo is dated August 7, 1935, and the caption on the back reads:

    “The power house, inside which a $2,000,000 modernization program is now getting under way. The foundry appears in the right background

Designed by Albert Kahn and built in 1922, the building is a great example of his industrial works. The powerhouse, a staple of almost every large factory, is a bit of a rarity. Often the powerhouses were among the first buildings to go.

Have a good weekend everyone. See you back here Monday.
