Years ago the company I worked for did some surveying on tracts of land that became part of the So7 development. The senior surveyor on the project talked about this plant while the rest of us "young-uns" looked on in disbelief. "No, the GM plant is in Arlington..." He finally convinced us but I've never seen any photos of the plant or the surrounding area from that time. That's surely a sight to see.

We worked around it at Dunaway Associates when I worked on S07 back in the early 2000s. Also, the peanut silos which I think were owned by the Leonards.

According to Historicaerials.com, it was demolished in the 1980's. I remember the building, and I was hoping the Jack White Collection had some photographs, but I couldn't find any.

Larry, the moves that Montgomery Ward made through Fort Worth have been documented within the building pages of Architecture in Fort Worth. The only difference is that I have the date of 1921 as to when they left downtown and moved into the Chevy Plant on West 7th.

It wouldn't surprise me if it was 1922. I have found that some of my sources are slightly "off" on dates.
