This view across the Buick site is probably from early 1932 as evidenced by the old foundry #20 being fully demolished and building #85 the new engineering works has not been built yet. You will also note that factory #35 and #37 are now gone. The east wing of factory #01 has been removed and the main office #07 on Hamilton has been extended to the east.
Here we see a load of Buick body’s just arriving from Fisher Body at the Hamilton Avenue gate located at south Division street. That is building #44 in the background.
The red arrow shows the location of the “tank farm” during construction .This was the new centralized receiving area for all the paint and other chemicals used for painting an automobile. The yellow arrow is where the paint dept. #11 was located on the 3rd floor of factory #04. The green arrow shows factory #44 the future paint facility which was originally the engine dress area on the 1rst floor. When you enlarge this photo you can see a Fisher Body hauler just under the red arrow.
This is the Buick site in 1975.
