The Stove Factory: 1901

Today’s Top 5

Efficiency

This company was both quite efficient and attentive to their customers's needs. Not only did you get a new stove, you also got the makings for the first fire you'd start in it.

Coal bunker

Looks like they are storing coal in the building to the left and it is spilling out of what were once windows.

Great view of the brake pipe hose, glad hand and coupler on that old rail car!

Chelsea - a Jiffy town

Chelsea, Michigan apparently never went without heat in the winter - nor did it probably lack for muffins, as it is to this day the home of "Jiffy" muffin mix, put up in those cute little boxes and sold the world around. Did Detroit Publishing Company's camera man point his box toward that venerable plant while in Chelsea?

Single-use

They must be making "wood stoves."

Sorry I couldn't resist.

Got Wood?

I'm guessing the boards on the rail car will become shipping crates for the stoves.

Making wood stoves

out of wood ??!!

Firewood

There seems to be an awful lot of wood around there for a Stove Factory. Packing crates perhaps?
