|The Crown Factory
|Located at 2500 E 12th Street, Los Angeles, California.
Founded in 1904, the Crown Coach Corporation actually got it's start at 621-623 S Los Angeles Street
in Los Angeles. Building business wagons for business men.
We will focus here on the 12th Street location as this is where the company was located for most of it's
history. We are going to take a walk back in time doing some Industrial Archeology.
I have been fortunate to have been able to interview several Crown employees, most notably, Bill Hoeft
who worked in the Firecoach Division itself for several years starting in 1961.
