In 1904, Joesph Boyer, president of the Burroughs Adding Machine Company, commissioned Albert Kahn to build a factory for his business which was to be located on Second Avenue in Detroit. A short time after completion, Kahn received another commission, this time for fireproof additions. In late January of 1948, Albert Kahn Associates (Kahn died in 1942) started work on the addition to Burroughs' boiler house. All the photos, most are dated, relate directly to this project except for two of the loose photos, which show the flagpole being attached to Burroughs building, a handwritten note attached from D.M. Smith in advertising to a Mr. Platt saying that these are the photos he promised him. In the background of two of the photos in Binder #1 the Fisher Bldg, another Albert Kahn design, can be clearly seen. A total of 40 photos.
