Occasionally in this column Iíll pull out an old photograph from the Albion Malleable Iron Company, once Albionís major employer. World War II was a time of transition for the Albion Malleable Iron Company as it retooled itself for War production. It also meant a change of management as some of its key executives entered the armed services to serve our country. This week from our Historical Notebook we present a rarely-seen photograph of Albion Malleable Foremen and Supervisors, circa early 1940s. Two of my uncles are in this.
