Good picture hard to find. Not many pictures taken in that time frame or saved,compared to today. Cameras were expensive and a luxury item then. Steve,can you sort out which building was the marble factory? There is five listed on the back,but i am having trouble sorting out which building housed what? I am comparing this to the picture in Americam Machine-Made Marbles page 40. That shows the RR,Wissmach and Alley very good. Was the picture you posted from the library. I think Paden City library also had some good pictures of the button factory,Wissmach and Alley building.

Something has me confused here. I thought the Paden City Alley marble factory was beside and just south of Paden City Wissmach Glass which is a good distance north of present Marble King. Also the picture has the date Alley 1928-1935. Alley was in Sistersville 1931 & maybe 1932. Then he was in Pennsboro 1932-33 until 1939. I thought a newer house now stands where the Paden City Alley marble factory was located. ????????
