Southern Pacific Railroad 1920s Freight Records - California Pottery Company

From: "Sarah Lim" info@mercedmuseum.org

... I am looking for the Southern Pacific Railroad company freight records pertaining to the California Pottery Company plant in Merced, California. I am working on a new exhibit for our museum which will open in May 2006. Southern Pacific Railroad Company was crucial to the pottery plant in Merced since it shipped out most of its products. The Merced plant was built and dedicated in 1922 and closed in 1931 during the Great Depression. Any information and direction you provide will be greatly appreciated.
