Gerber Products Plant, Fremont, Michigan

This aerial view of Gerber Products Company, the largest business in Fremont for many decades shows the plant as it looked some time before the second world war. The founder, Dan Gerber, was a resident of Fremont and built his baby food company from a canning business owned by his father.

The image of the child in the upper left corner, known as the Gerber Baby, was used continuously on Gerber baby food products and other items. It is a portrait of the five month old Ann Turner Cook.

This postcard was used and is dated 8 July 1939.
