Unidentified Albers Mill employees canning Friskies Pet Food


Black and white image of three men monitoring what appears to be a pet food canning machine. A large steel drum occupies the lower right of the image, and a narrow chute descends from the ceiling at one end. Cans appear to be being fed into the tube, then ejected at the bottom. One man in a white coverall stands directly next to the chute, while two others watch from a distance. One wears a coverall and the other a white lab coat. Though perhaps better known today for their cornmeal and grits, museum records identify this Albers Mill, located in Hillsboro, as a manufacturer of Friskies canned pet foods. See WCMpic_013851, WCMpic_013854, WCMpic_013869, and WCMpic_013875 for other images of the mill as a pet food plant.
