Old Ford Postcard

Here’s an older postcard view of the Ford Factory I recently added to my collection, it has a very strange green tint to it for some reason….

The postcard dates to the late 30’s early 40’s, and I have no idea what that huge expanse of land is in the lower right hand corner.

It’s not the test track, as this photo shows the area north of Seminole. The Fire Insurance Map from the same era, doesn’t make any notation of the land. In fact, there is a large building south of the factory (in the lower left corner), that doesn’t show up on the map. So that would help date the card to after 1937… Cards prior to 1935 also noted the area as Ford City (until 1929) or East Windsor (1930-1935), this one denotes the plant as being in Windsor.
