Factory Lunch at the Rouge 1929

The next set of photos shows how food is produced & packaged for the lunch trucks that were deposited in specific areas of each building. If you have the book "Rouge Pictured In It's Prime" by Ford Bryan, he has an excellent chapter with more detailed photos. If you don't have this book, I suggest you order a copy or get your spouse to get one for Christmas or something. It's one of the finest books on the Rouge I have came across.

Small Pies - Good chance these were made with products from the Ford Farms.
