Ford in Seattle

Hmm. I had no idea Ford used to have an assembly plant here in Seattle. Vintage Seattle has the scoop:

Heading down Fairview Ave toward Lake Union you’ll find one of the city’s finest examples of industrial age architecture in the Ford Motor Company Assembly Plant (now Public Storage). It was designed by architect John Graham Sr and constructed in 1913. Model T’s were assembled at the plant for years and in 1932 operations moved to another location in the city.

I’ve driven past this building many times (it’s in a very high-visibility location in South Lake Union), but never knew its history. Cool.
