In 1909, Barrett Manufacturing began construction on a new plant, to consolidate two separate works at 25th Street and Loomis Avenue, and on Goose Island. According to the Chicago Tribune, the new Barrett site took up about twenty-four acres ("Barrett Co. Gets a Big Site," Chicago Tribune, April 20, 1909, p. 14). Barrett manufactured construction materials for paving and roofing. In this photograph, workers are taking English language classes provided by the company in 1919.
