ALBION – The image on this color post card shows the Bert Olney Canning Company Plant in Albion from the first decade of the 20th Century. The factory was located off East Avenue along the NYC Railroad.

In our photo we see long conveyors extending into the yard. This was the pea vinery part of the plant. Hence there are heaps of pea vines waiting to be put on the conveyors to go into the plant for processing. The back of the postcard indicates it was mailed July 23, 1909.
