This April of 1947 Popular Science magazine showed a history book for “BUICK, CITY OF FLINT” that was for sale in the classified section. This advertisement came pretty close to the future name for the Buick factory. I believe the book this ad is referring to is “The City Of Flint Grows Up” by: Carl Crow. The price for Carl’s book was $3.00 printed on the dust jacket, and it was published in 1945.
This photo is the exact opposite direction as shown below (this is north-east). This is the intersection of Leith and Division streets. The bridge is for bringing finished engine blocks to factory #11 for machining. The date is September 24, 1924. This foundry was built in 1916. It was demolished between 1931- 1932. This was the location of building #85 where I hired in during 1972.
