Bay View Rolling Mill : The Reason We Exist
Copy of photograph of Bay View Rolling Mill, circa 1887.
The mill was known as the North Chicago Rolling Mill at the time.

Two thousand employees worked at the mill at the height of its operation. They toiled from 6am until 6pm, six days a week. As we will see later, many were not happy with having such long hours of work, and set out to do something about it.
