Not Lansing, it's L'anse in the U.P.

There you go. I thought it was mis-labeled, but I didn't know any better. When I found it, it was labeled Lansing, I thought it might have been abbreviated on the photo, but why? I knew someone here would know for sure.
Would this have been a lumber mill to get wood for the care bodies?
It looks like the workers cars in the parking lot are pretty Ford loyal.

Here's some more information from the History of Baraga County.

The next major player was Henry Ford as he purchased both the Pequaming Mill and the LíAnse Mill. He later built a model mill and community south of LíAnse called Alberta. Ford also purchased mills in Big Bay and the Iron Mountain/Kingsford area. The wood from Fordís mills were used in the manufacturing of his automobiles
