||"My father, George Cornog, started Cornog Pattern Co. in 1958 and was located at 733 East 12th street (the 2nd building east of the south side 12th & Chestnut) in a sheet iron building next to
Robert Howarth & Sons, a sheet metal fabricator.
When pattern work was good in those days, he employed between 8 & 25 patternmakers. At that time the pattermakers worked in the job shops through the local union hall much like construction workers do today. They moved from shop to shop according to which shop bid the job too low and was unlucky enough to get it. I graduated from Chester High in 1961 and served my
apprenticeship of five years (10,000 hrs.) learning from the journeymen who were trained at places like Baldwins, Westinghouse, etc.
We operated at that shop untill 1973 when Robert Howarths was sold to a group from the old
Belmont Iron Works in Eddystone and they bought the building which we were only renting to expand their. operation We then moved to the old Ship & Shore building in Upland at 6th & Upland Ave, and were there
until 1980 when my father retired and I bought the business and moved to a larger shop behind Chalmers & Kubeck machine shop. I remained at that location until I bought property in Aston on Pennell Rd. and built a new shop and have my home here."
