Factory #44 During Construction

Here's a view facing north west across Hamilton at Division, showing the construction of factory #44 in 1974. Even at this time the building was being used by factory #04 for overflow of vehicles needing repair. I was working one Sunday in there early in the morning and it was so dark I walked into an open pit full of ice water, the first floor was still dirt at that time and that sure ruined my morning. This also shows a good view of the body receiving structure. When you enlarge this photo you can see one of the Fisher Body trucks above the corvette, the truck is either pulling out or waiting for a full load of body dollies to show up. The trucks could not just sit and wait blocking the dock because there was a constant stream of body haulers coming from Fisher #1 on south Saginaw st. four miles away.
