PMC donates material; members provide labor at no cost to museum

THE LABOR AND Industry Museum in Belleville, Ill., was stumped. “Jumbo,” their 12-hp. steam engine tractor built in 1895 by Harrison Machine Works in Belleville, was out of commission. Jumbo needed work on the firebox section of its boiler, and the museum couldn’t find an organization willing to make the costly repairs. That is until they called their area Boilermaker hall — Local 363.
