“In 1888, the Sanitary Pottery, between known as the Broad Street Pottery, was started on the site where the public market was located a few years ago, between Broad and Second Streets. It was a two kiln plant, and was operated under a cooperative plan by a group of workingmen and others. They manufactured sanitary closets and other sanitary ware.”
