Group of men in front of factory

Photo submitted by Judy Lindsay-Bell

Note from Tamara Sanford: Looking through my many Delaware County books this building strongly resembles the Luzerne Chemical Company, Horton. From the building structure, the railroad tracks to the 2 chimney type pipes coming out of the building. I found a picture of comparison in my 'Two Stones For Every Dirt' book.

Note from Terry Jones, August 9, 2011:
I had access to a copy of this same picture from an Great Aunt (Wilda (Klinegardner) Hollenback, b. 1910) who is now gone, and it was identified to me as Luzerne Chemical Company, Horton. I have no idea who the men are as of yet, but I have had family members who worked there and 1 or 2 might be them, but not sure. She claimed an uncle or G-Grandfather was probably in that picture, but never got the chance to make a positive identification. I know The Chiloway Charcoal Factory was located in Horton and my father and his brother worked there for a time, could be that also as I don’t know how long that factory was there.
