Post Card - Noon Hour at Buick and Weston-Mott Factories, Flint, Mich.

Rare 3-1/2" x 5-1/2" color lithograph post card, circa 1908-1909, postmarked February 18, 1916.  This is a view looking east across Hamilton Avenue. The Buick headquarters building is in the center of the photo; Factory #1 is behind it.  The Weston-Mott Headquarters Building is next to Factory #1 (left). Note the addition to the Weston-Mott Headquarters Building has not yet been made.  A very small piece of W.F. Stewart Wood Works/Buick Factory #4 is shown (right), where early Buick bodies were built.  Flint Motor Axle Company is shown at the end of Hamilton Avenue (right side of photo).  The trolley lines that are shown ran to Saginaw Street, and south into downtown Flint, Michigan.  There is a handwritten message on the reverse side of the post card.  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.   If you have an interest in this item, check out item #00861, which is an exceptionally clear and sharp photograph from which this post card was prepared and colorized.
