On that much talked-about recent Wall Street Journal video about Albion on the internet, there was an historical photo supplied to them by the library showing the Corning Glass Works plant during its heyday. This factory was a major factor in Albionís "boom years" of the 1950s and 1960s. So many people worked there, and the housing subdivisions in the northeastern part of town were built to accommodate workers and their families. As a result, our schools were overflowing with students, businesses were booming, and Albion became a great place to live and raise a family.
This week in our Historical Notebook we present a photo from the early 1950s showing the Corning Glass Works union contract negotiators group photo. This is courtesy of Joseph Romanchuk. Whom do you remember in this photo?
