|Photographer||Webster & Stevens |
|Date||ca. 1919 |
|Caption||A small evaporated milk company which opened in Kent in 1899 grew to become the nationally known Carnation Company. Canned milk had a small market at first, but was soon accepted by hungry babies and gold-rush miners alike. By 1926, the company had six Seattle-area dairies and six local evaporated milk plants, plus 24 evaporated milk plants elsewhere in the country.|
This photo shows the storefront of Moore's Grocery, which is probably located at 3523 Fremont Avenue.
