A very Merry Christmas to my readers of this column. Thank you for your donations of historical photographs and information this past year which has helped in keeping this column going. Iím always looking for new material. Hey, if you still need a last-minute Christmas gift for someone, my Albion history books are still available from yours truly, or at the Albion Chamber of Commerce. Both "Albion in Review," and "Growing Up in Albion" would put a smile on the faces of those receiving them.
From our Historical Notebook this week we present a photograph of Consumers Power Company employees lined up in front of the office building at 121 E. Erie St. (recently demolished on November 22, 2010). This photo is dated June 1, 1937. On the far left is the W.C.T.U. building.
From left to right: George Gildersleeve, appliance service; Donald J. Gilbert, local manager; Ethelyn A. Gilbert, clerk; Geraldine (Day) Brunner, clerk; Christina M. Andrews, clerk; Tom Peterson, lineman; Norman DeLaney, foreman; Edward Philp, lineman; Howard Bennett, lineman, Allen Ketchum, lineman, Robert H. Deal, appliance salesman; Burt E. Caldwell, Janitor; Wilbur Knack, meterman; Archie Mills, appliance serviceman; Ernest Gilbert, appliance salesman; Ross A. Dutton, trouble man (yes, that is how it was labeled).
