Thanksgiving Ad – Lorain Slag Company 1956

Here’s a nice Thanksgiving ad courtesy of the Lorain Slag Company that ran in the Lorain Journal on November 22, 1956. It’s an ad with a patriotic and religious message that you don’t see too often in these "politically correct" days.

The Lorain Public Library’s “History of Lorain” timeline had the Lorain Slag Company opening on August 1, 1950. Its address was listed as “E. 21st Street at the Bridge” in the city directory.

Slag is formed during the blast furnace phase of the steelmaking process. It has many uses, including road and railway construction.

Anyway, here’s hoping you enjoy a wonderful Thanksgiving!
