Menasha Wooden Ware
This 1947 aerial view shows the Menasha Wooden Ware in the center of the picture. The street at the bottom is Main Street. The bridge at left is the Mill Street bridge and you can see a bit of the old library at the intersection of Mill and Water Streets at the lower left hand corner. Right across the street from that is the Hotel Menasha. Notice the railroad siding outside the plant, boxcars at the ready to be filled with butter tubs and other wooden products.
