Ford City was a town steeped in the history of the auto industry. Companies including Ford, E.M.F., Studebaker, Chalmers and Chrysler all called Ford City their home of Canadian operations. But it was more than just an industrial town. It was a rumrunning hub, a communist hotbed, and a thriving cultural centre for the people of the Border Cities. From the town's inception, through amalgamation, to the revitalization of the Ford plant in the 1990s, Ford City is the story of the industrial heart of Windsor.

Editorial Review

Praise for Herb Colling and Turning Points

"Colling rebuts the curious notion that Canadian history, even when told in relation to major U.S. events, is not compelling or important."Quill & Quire
