The Standard Plate Glass Company


Out of stock



By Ray D. Hoffman

In the 1880’s ample natural gas supplies made profitable plate glass production possible in Butler. Pittsburgh-area window glassmakers used the Butler works to challenge the newly formed Pittsburgh Plate Glass Company in the rapidly growing national plate glass market. Hundreds of immigrant and native workers are identified and their paths to Butler charted. Soft cover, 52 pages, photo- graphs, and maps.
