Here is a 1976 photo taken by Michael Hayman. His photo is facing east towards Industrial Avenue. I knew the Oak Park neighborhood pretty good, but not as well as some crack addicts I knew.
One more Industrial Avenue business.
Another of the many businesses tied in with the Buick factory.
|Facing north on Industrial Avenue at the corner of Industrial and Parkland. Shown on map below. The building on the right is ‘old’ factory #12.|
Felix Bober in front of his service station on Industrial Avenue and Edmund Street. The maps at the bottom show the location near the Buick factory. I do not know which corner this is because Edmund street crossed Industrial at that time, when a neighborhood was still located where factory #05/building #43 would be built in the early fifties.

Bober’s Filling Station
During 1910 these lots were being sold by a lottery drawing. This site would be the parking lot of future factory #05.
