1959-02-09

Firefighters work to put out fire at a Packard Motor Company factory in Detroit, Michigan. The factory was designed by architect, Albert Kahn in the early 1900's. "The first large automobile plant in Detroit, the Packard factory was the golden opportunity of Kahn's life and was to determine the future course of his career, the progress that he made may be attributed largely to his ability to satisfy the requirements of his client ... between 1903 and 1905 Kahn built nine buildings for the Packard group, all of mill construction," from "The Buildings of Detroit: A History," by W. Hawkins Ferry.
