LOUISVILLE FOUNDRY CLOSED YEARS AGO, BUT INTERNATIONAL CADETS STILL STAND AT ATTENTION

These two International cadets were poured on the same date (Aug. 14, 1924) at the International Foundry at Louisville, KY. The foundry is now closed. When it was shut down several years ago, it was one of the largest of its kind in the world. I have no idea what happened to all the foundry equipment. What a shame.
