Description:
The goal of this category is to locate and photograph factories where notable products were or are made. We would prefer that this be restricted to products recognizable to most, perhaps even iconic. This could be the Corvette factory near Bowling Green, KY, the Hershey factory in Hershey, PA, or the Heinz factory in Pittsburgh. In some cases, these buildings are long gone, but record the location and giving an indication of what is there now would be acceptable.
