Ford Factory – 1935

Happy Friday once again. Today is an old photo from the Ford Motor Company, dated July 12, 1935. The caption on the back reads as follows:

    The machine shop and final assembly building. This building covers more than 13 acres of ground. At the extreme left is the new electric furnace foundry, built this year at a cost of $500,000.

This part of the picture is my favourite. The large apartment building is quite a beauty and is long gone. The building was somewhere around where the photo below shows.

Most buildings in the photo above are long gone.

Have a good weekend, see you back here Monday.
