Today’s photos were taken on various assembly lines at the Packard plant located on East Grand Blvd. in Detroit, Michigan. The lead image shows workers on the frontend assembly line working on 1940 model Packard grille shells complete with the Packard signature grille insert. The shells are mounted on wooden jigs and the workers tighten fasteners with power tools suspended overhead when not being used.
