Post Card - Buick Motor Works, Flint, Mich.

3-1/2" x 5-1/2" photograph post card.  View is looking to the Northwest across Hamilton Avenue.  Factory 1 (foreground) was constructed in 1907.  Behind it is Factory 6, also constructed in 1907.  The Buick headquarters building is on the left.   In the center of the photo, the stack from the Oak Powerhouse can be seen.  The Oak Powerhouse was the first power plant to be constructed on the Buick site.  This photo was likely taken from the front of the Flint Varnish Works factory, across Hamilton Avenue.  This post card is post marked January 12, 1909, Glens Falls, New York.  There is a type-written message on the reverse that reads as follows: "During the Automobile Show at Madison Square Garden Jan. 16th to 23rd, our headquarters will be at the Buick Branch, 1733 Broadway, 55th St.  You are invited to call and see the complete line of Buicks for 1909.  Miller Brothers."  You will receive high-resolution images of excellent clarity of both sides of this post card, enlarged to 8-1/2" x 11" to show evey detail.
