1906 Buick.

This north-east view  from 1906 shows all the same structures shown below. This photo was taken from the roof of the Stewart #4 body assembly factory. Hamilton Avenue is in the foreground.  Links:

Buick during 1906 shows a  field of stumps yet to be removed. The photographer would have been standing where the future Oak Park entrance to Buick City would be located. This south-east view shows from left to right: factories #06 assembly, #01 paint and transmission, Oak Park Power Company, Weston-Mott axle assembly partially blocking the Stewart #4 body assembly.  1906 buick

This north view may have been taken the same day as the view above. From left to right is the Oak Park subdivision along Industrial Avenue, Weston-Mott axle assembly, Oak Park Power Company and #01 paint and transmission. Notice that this postcard and the one above are from the same company using the same font.
