Youngstown Car Company

The reason for studying this company was not so much for the product but for this photo and the fact that the main building is still standing. Their product were little carts that were used in plants to move material from one stage of processing to the next stage. Please access the link in the caption for more information on the product.

Note that the land between that plant and the Mahoning River used to be one of several steel mills that lined both sides of the river.
