Smile For The Camera!



Welcome to the Frankenmuth Woolen Mill Way Back Wednesday post!

To celebrate our 125th year, each Wednesday we will take a look back at what was happening in the world over various times in the history of our historic woolen mill.

Future crooner "Bing" Crosby was born Harry Lillis Crosby on May 3, 1903 in Tacoma, Washington. Before becoming an entertainment icon, a 7 year old Harry found the comic strip "The Bingville Bugle" quite funny, leading family to nickname him Bing.

1903 found the Frankenmuth Woolen Mill staff in what appears to be a more serious mood as they gather for the first of many, yearly photos.

Remember to always smile for the camera...you never know who's social media post you might show up in 116 years later!
