SHELBY PLOW AND FOUNDRY CO.

 
 
 
 
Ad appearing in the March 11, 1898 issue of The Shelby News
 
 

 

This is a newcomer, but Shelby is benefited, since it represents employment
to about 15 skilled mechanics, who are for the most part engaged in the
manufacture of the Shelby Burch Plow - an implement that is admitted
by all who use it, to be the best on the market.
 
The company also make all kinds of iron castings.
They say their business is excellent and improving, and invite farmers
especially to visit their works, located near the Junction, on the old
Beecher Furnace Co.’s premises, and inspect their plows.
