I was looking at the photos in the Saginaw Public Library archives and I saw this photo of Steering Gear’s plant 3 and it caught my attention since there are no buildings behind it. Growing up in Saginaw I always remember the enormous complex of plants along I-75 and I have never seen this photo. Looking at the cars in the parking lot I think this photo must have been taken in the late 50s or early 60s. Plant 3 was built on Holland Ave. in 1953 and plant 4 next to it was built in 1956. It’s strange looking at this photo and seeing trees and fields behind the plant and not the buildings from plants 5, 6, and 7.
