That is an interesting local history website... A lot of production work used to be done by children until it was made illegal in by the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938...

Old hat!
My Father worked there according to censes back in 1913, & he was only born in 1904.
He worked there for years. That's how I started in Locksmithing.
