Check out these great historic photos of work life at the Packard Motor Car Co. We wanted to take a moment to highlight these former employees, the backbone of the plant.
The two photos were sent to us by Michael Finley, showing his grandfather, Frederick Lyon. Lyon started working at the Packard Plant in 1910. He moved his family to a house on Medbury St. only a couple blocks away. In the photo below Lyon is on the far right, 2nd row from the top with a dark shirt and suspenders.
In the photo below Lyon is in the back row near the middle between the two men with bowler hats.
Let’s not forget the ladies of the Packard! The photo below is of the office staff located in building 13, former Administration Building.
