This is inside Michigan Motor Casting which was located on Industrial Avenue, just north of the Weston-Mott axle factory.
|The same area as shown below only viewed from Industrial Avenue facing south-east.|
|This is a view of the factory from the north-east. This is where factory #04 would be built in 1947. The addition in the foreground was built in 1909. Another addition was erected at the same time on the south-end of the factory and was used as the axle machine shop. The center section shown here (with saw tooth roof) which was the location of the original Michigan Motor Casting plant was demolished and rebuilt in 1917 and was then called factory #38. This would be the Oak Park entrance in my time at the right. This entrance was open to vehicle traffic well into the 70's even after factory #04 was built here. Factory #04's second and third floor spanned this open area until more floor space for a new motor line was needed.|
