My grandmother worked at Homer Laughlin from the time she was 16 years old until she was 60. They had no benefits then so she walked out of there with her last pay check. Hard to believe it is still going. I was born in Newell, West Virginia in 1939 so my grandmother was probably working there then. I used to check the bottom of dishes for years and found lots all over with the Homer Laughlin name on them. Small world.

Thanks for stopping by Elizabeth. It is amazing to see how many Laughlin dishes make it out all over. Wish your grandmother had better memories of working there...
