Guillermo Kahlo, father of artist Frida Kahlo, was one of the foremost architectural photographers in Mexico during the early 1900s. In 1932, Kahlo's studio documented the Ford Mexico City assembly plant. This visual record was created the same year Kahlo's son-in-law Diego Rivera began the Detroit Industry murals -- the monumental frescoes at the Detroit Institute of Arts funded by Edsel Ford.
