Notes: I found an article in an old Friendship paper, dated 27 Apr. 1916, which read: "B.F. Drake has bought Friendship Foundry of Hart and Stroyni which will be run in connection with the engine works and it`s expected that they will produce many of the castings used. Mr. Stroyni will continue to work with Mr. Drake."
My dad worked in that foundry from about 1927, until he retired in the 1950`s. I always heard of Ed Striney (I supposed it was spelled), and thought that he was one of the workers there. I never knew that he was a former owner.
This doesn`t mention the fact that they made the Empire Range, a combination coal and wood cook stove which every kitchen needed, and of course, the best one made! I saw one still in use in the 1970`s.
