ALBION – In this photo taken in the late 1920s, we see the interior of the Kenyon Kumfort Kab Kompany in Albion.

This was located at the corner of Liberty Street and Beaver Alley in Albion. Their main line of work was manufacturing truck cabs under contract with the Brockway Co.

These were made of hardwood and covered with sheet metal. Cabs were also made for Mack trucks and fire trucks.

The man at the left is Roy Wyman who died in 1937. Other men in the picture include Walter “Barney” Johnson, John Wells and George Wigley, while others are unidentified.
