Ford's B-24 Bomber Plant at Willow Run

Presented are scans of original negative taken during the WW2 years of the Willow Run factory, the base, and some publicity photos. Thanks to Sam Sturgis, who preserved the original negatives and who also scanned them to provide these photos.

This album was re-created in May, 2013 owing to the failure of several servers owned by the photo hosting company. Many photos that were missing for the past few months have been uploaded once more.
