This south-east view over the original Flint Wagon Works factory before it burnt on March 21, 1900 shows the site directly across the street (wood storage above the word Kearsley) where the first Buick factory would be built in late 1903.
This view facing west, with the Chevrolet avenue bridge in the distance, is the same view as below. The building with the row of windows around the top would be the location of the first Buick plant in Flint. This is the east end of factory #4. This was the where the cafeteria was located, that I mentioned in a previous post. You can still see the remnants of the Grand Trunk rail line in the foreground.
This fantasy photo resembles what would have been in early 1904 with Kearsley street running between the two factories. The viewer would be facing west. Below you can view the Current site of the original Kearsley street factory. Link for original plant in color
This is showing the original locations of the first Buick factory in Flint. The view is facing west across the old Chevy in the hole site. This was where I worked in 1973. You can see many more photos of this site in my previous posts.
This closeup photo showing the location of the various buildings comprising the Wagon Works was taken at the Stockton House on Ann Arbor st. in Flint. This is a wonderful 4 foot 1870 map. Said to be the only one known to exist.
