While doing a quick search online for Smith Brothers Manufacturing Company (Big Smith), I stumbled upon these great images on the facebook page belonging to the Powers Museum of Carthage, Missouri. Their facebook pages can be found here and the museum site is located here.

I visited the Carthage factory which was founded by Grandfather and Great Uncles. Uncle Clayton managed the operation after the death of his brother Ed. My Mother took me see her Uncle each and we toured the plant and I got my jeans and a jacket for school wear. My second cousin, clayton, continued to operate the company until his retirement, so I still frequently visited with him.ReplyDelete
