58-46 : Burnaby Ford Plant

Mark

 

Here’s another amazing image. Did you know there was a Ford Automotive Assembly Plant on Kingsway in Burnaby? The factory sat in the location now taken up by part of Metrotown Center. This image from 1958 shows the Ford Plant in all it’s glory. The street beside the plant is Silver Avenue and the street on the right is McKay Avenue. Both these streets used to connect to Kingsway.

    My Aunt Yvonne worked there during the war. Not sure if they were still building anything in 1958 or if it was just offices or warehouse space by then, anyone know?

    Zoom right in on the Ford, Lincoln, Edsel and Mercury in the loop driveway! Great to see this.

      That's Silver Avenue. It used to extend to Kingsway but now it's blocked by Metrotown.

    I remember the building, it was still standing as late as 1985
