RE:M-H Tanks/Racine
This is an artist's impression of the M-H Racine Tank factory.  The photo here is slightly cropped because the original would not totally fit my scanner.

M-H acquired the factory from Nash-Kelvinator when it was lying unused.   This original factor is probably the main block of factory.  I believe that the two long sheds in the foreground may well be additional warehousing  constructed by M-H to enable them to fulfill their post war contract for the production of the M44 self propelled Howitzers.  I have read talk of a "feeder warehouse" for this operation.

Now then you Racine and Wisconsin folks - please get round the old tank and tractor factory sites and let us know what is left please with some photos.  This is real M-H history.
