E.N. CAMP FACTORY
E.N. Camp Factory
This photo provided by Moreland history buff Ed Wolak from the collection of Cleo Hindsman is of the E.N. Camp Factory in Moreland in the early 1900s. It shows a row of the machines made there to distribute guano or seed. A horse or mule would be used to pull the small hand-guided machines in forming operations before the days of tractors. The gentleman pictured may be Mr. Puckett. This combination foundry and millwork company, known as the "Camp's Shops," was owned and operated by E.N. Camp and his sons Wayman, New, Andrew, Hugh, Frank and Lee. According to a descendant, Mrs. Miriam Miller, the company with its three-story foundry was bought by Johnson Hardware about 1925 and later merged with King Plow Company of Atlanta. Models of the machines - sold in hardware stores across the South in the early 1900s - were still being sold into the 1950s or later, Mrs. Miller said. The factory was typical of many small factories throughout the South in those days, she said.
