Lance Ferraro, a well-known local photographer in the Kalamazoo area, was employed by The Upjohn Company to take photos at various times. The selection of photos below showing the Portage site in the 1950's when it was new were provided to me by Lance in 2012.

Loraine Pschigoda took the photo below of the Building 41 front entrance in the 1950s.

Here's a photo of repainting the water towers at the Portage manufacturing site in the September 1958 Overflow.

And finally here is an article from the February 1959 issue of The Overflow showing the Portage manufacturing site expansion between 1953 and 1958.
