Changing Face of the Auto Industry


The Changing Face of the Auto Industry Collection contains images from the Detroit Public Library's National Automotive History Collection and Burton Historical Collections. These photographs and postcards document the auto industry in the Detroit area during the first half of the twentieth century. This digitized collection is the result of a partnership between the Detroit Public Library and Wayne State University. The original images are held in the Special Collections at the Detroit Public Library. Additional images and other related resources, including books, owner's manuals, advertising, and archival materials can be found in the remainder of the National Automotive History Collection.
