When I opened this, I thought that was the new nickname form Coleman A Young's kid from California who changed his name to CAY Jr and then ran for the state legislature.

There may have been an L.A. Young plant on Holbrook west of the Grand Trunk RR tracks. It was on the north side of Holbrook. I'm not sure if they was a RR siding which serviced the plant or not. There were several Chevrolet Gear and Axle plants in the compound on both sides of Holbrook. There was a forge in the compound as well as several plants which did machining. I am not sure of what the plant made, the name was painted on the south side of the building and quite readable if you rode the Holbrook bus.

I had a aunt that worked at a L.A. Young on Mill street, west of Jefferson back in the early 50's. I believe she said they made car doors etc. Maybe a stamping plant ?? I don't remember who they supplied.
