Looks like the second photo was taken on Sample Street in South Bend. Perhaps a mile west of the Factory.

You are absolutley correct about those two threads on the HAMB. Also there is this one: http://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/showthread.php?t=428585&highlight=vintage+pictures

It does take time to go through these fantastic threads, but it is time well spent.
