A Tour of the Oakland Plant

Since there is a lot of restoration work going on at this time through out the club, I recommend
reading the "1929 Tour of Oakland Plant" located in the Special Interest section or by clicking the link to your left.

This is a reproduction of the pamphlet given to everyone that took a walking tour through the Oakland factory in 1929. I was especially interested in the section that described the painting process. It's interesting to learn that they washed to bodies down with
gasoline as preparation for painting.
