In 1915, the Crane Manufacturing Company moved from its former site at 1100 South Canal Street to this plant at 41st and Kedzie. The new location took advantage of easy access to rail transportation at the Santa Fe-Corwith Railyards just north of this site, and became the largest employer in the area. The accompanying photograph shows three workers in the factory on March 26, 1943.
