Building #55-A viewed from Stewart Avenue. This view is facing west. Leonard Thygesen said it smelled awful while they were pumping out those aeration tanks. Building #55 is still standing as of this posting. A Quote from Leonard on 2-28, 2012 says: “They are STILL sucking yuck out/from 55. it’s been at least a month now.
Building #22 was originally a powerhouse for factory #10. In later years it became a compressed air generating station. It was just demolished in January of 2012. The 1942 photo is during building construction.
This is a postcard showing the Buick Garage (at the left) and W.F. Stewart body plant (at the right). This view is facing east from the intersection of Industrial and Hamilton Avenue around 1910. I have not posted this one before. You can also see the D.U.R. depot at the extreme left.
