Hi, New to the forum, Greetings to All! Does anybody have any information or pics of the Milwaukee Lofts/Junction area, when it was the Continental Can Company? Thanks.

It seems that the C.C.C. was the first company to have a usable drink can, wax lined, and a cone shape top. Some of the first clients included, beer companies and Pepsi Cola. Odd that Vernors wasn't part of this deal as the timeline,(Early 20th Century), and location, (Detroit) for both companies unrolled at about the same time.
