Buick Blacksmith

This snippet is from the short story:   Men...A City... and Buick by George Humphrey Maines   and shows the blacksmith  shop (shown below) as being located in factory #11 engine plant.
Inside of factory #11 at the north-west corner showing the old blacksmith shop. This photo was dated 1915. Photo is from the Sloan Museum in Flint, Michigan.

Inside the blacksmith shop. The article is from the Ludington Michigan newspaper July 10, 1937. The men are Nels Larsen and Niel Nicholson.

The location for the new blacksmith shop in 1920 at the north-end of the forge plant #03. As I recall we still had one blacksmith working at Buick up until the creation of Buick City in 1985.
