dc.description Postcard showing a photo of women walking outside the Michigan Canning and Provision Co, American Cereal Co., and Pipe Organ Co. buildings, c. 1905. A story about the construction of the Compensating Organ Company was published in 1903. From "The Morning Enquirer, May 1, 1903, p. 4. RUSHING BUSINESS At the Compensating Pipe Organ Company's Plant, Merrill Park - Machinery All Purchased for its Equipment Manager Ruse of The Compensating Pipe Organ Company has now purchased all the machinery which will be required to thoroughly equip that extensive plant, including planers, stickers, molders, sanding machines, saws, etc., etc., all of modern construction. The factory will also be equipped with an up-to-date system of fans blowers by which all the dirt, dust and shavings will be instantly and quickly removed from the Interior of the building and fed to the furnaces. A considerable portion of the last story walls is now in place, ready for the timbers which would have been set yesterday but for the high winds. Contractor Michael is everywhere present, and is doing as faithful and conscientious work upon this building which characterized his efforts upon the mammoth new Battle Creek Sanitarium. All the material necessary for the construction of the building is now upon the ground, including the slate for the roof. When the plant is in full operation the company, will give employment to between two and three hundred men." Caption on front: A 7721 Mich.
