Description: This is a photograph of the North Bridge employee entrance at Youngstown Sheet and Tube's Campbell Works, East Youngstown (Campbell), Ohio, ca. 1910-1919. Shown is the gatehouse, gatekeeper, and the bridge that led into the plant. The sign posted above the bridge is written in two different Slavic languages, depicting the immigrant influence at Youngstown Sheet and Tube at this time. During James A. Campbell's tenure as president of the company, thousands of immigrants were employed by Youngstown Sheet and Tube. The company tried to ease the immigrants' assimilation into their new homeland by providing signs and manuals in their native languages as well as offering classes in English. View on Ohio Memory.
