Shorpy Saturday – Ford Motor Company: 1910

By Jeffrey Buck

This stretch of Woodward in Highland Park has changed significantly since 1910. A large portion of this factory no longer exists and what does still stand today is very neglected. It’s a shame that the office portion of the building has not been taken care of. It’s integral to this regions history and it continues to fall apart each day. The strip mall constructed on the property does nothing to for the history of this iconic factory unless you count the name, Model T Plaza.

Take a look at the photograph entitled “Ford Motor Company: 1910“:
