In July, 1926, construction was started on a large factory addition in the middle West. There were no material dealers or labor unions in the community so all material and labor required for construction work had to be brought in from other communities. The factory site being located close to the west shore of Lake Michigan has a very changeable climate, and cold weather may be expected any time from early October to April. The fall months are usually very rainy.
