Ever Driven on Empire Ave by the Empire Center and wonder why it is called that?
The Empire China company was located just next to where Wendy’s is today. They
produced fine china products, plates, Vases, and statuary. The products they produced are very collectible today.
When they went out of Business the Building was bought by a little known company named Lockheed for an airplane factory.
This picture of the employees of the China factory is courtesy of Mr. Fermer Kellogg of Burbank whose father is shown on the right in the white coveralls.
