Birmingham Metal Products. North side of Rt 113 east of Florence Wakeman Rd, Florence. No longer in business although all the buildings are there.

One of these buildings was the hangar for the Harrison Airport which ceased operation in 1950. In 1952 Richard Dewalt opened an auto repair shop in the old hangar. In 1953 Birmingham Metal Products started here. It was owned by M A Harrison, who also had a company by that name further east of here. See photos 23 and 24 - photo 23 has the full description. They had 10 employees to start.

Today Google shows the "All Things" restaurant here.
