Steel Master, located on Broadway off 234th. Was a manufacturer of steel cabinets of commercial use. A lot were filing cabinets. I still have two! They were designed for filing cards and index cards. They employed about 100 workers and had a railroad easement behind the factory.
Fanny Farmer Chocolate Factory was around 236th. They employed about 30 workers. On the other side of Broadway was Stella D'Oro, near the railroad tracks. They employed about thirty workers too.
In Spuyten Dyvil, there was an iron foundry called Johnson Iron. They employed about fifty when I was a kid.
There were a few piano makers around the old Bruckner Blvd. Can't remember names tho.
