For some reason these old factory postcards (there are thousands) really speak to me. Just the fact that someone would put a factory on a postcard. In those days they were proud of them - factories were the pride of their communities. And they even seemed to admire the smoke belching out - a sign of progress. I also like the fact that many of the old factory photos or drawings show trains moving around the property hauling goods.
These four postcards show the factories of Galveston Brewing, Schlitz, Pabst and Firestone.
