Inscription.  This building was constructed in 1919 and was located on the west side of San Dimas Avenue between Bonita Avenue and the Santa Fe Railroad tracks. It was one of two plants which produced approximately 5,000,000 pounds of marmalade annually. The factory typically employed about fifty people. Local inhabitants didn't like the smell of the refuse that was discarded in the wash south of the plant. In 1926, to the satisfaction of the community, the plant moved to Ontario.
