Corn Pack Finished, Jamaicans To Be Sent Elsewhere


From the October 3, 2018, MidWeek  "Looking Back."

1943, 75 Years Ago.

"Word from authoritative sources was to the effect that the corn pack at the Sycamore Preserve Works was about completed and within the next two or three days the Jamaicans, who have been here many weeks assisting in the canning operations will be sent to some other locality to work."

Bringing in workers from Jamaica to help with labor shortages.  German prisoners were also used to help as well.
