American Electric Welding, Baltimore MD and Savannah GA

Most recent update: March 25, 2017.


American Electric Welding Company's original yard was at the foot of Caroline Street, in the Fells Point district of Baltimore.  After the war, however, they moved to Savannah, where they continued until the mid-1950s: was its Savannah yard the predecessor of Diamond Manufacturing?  If anyone can add to the table below, please send your info to timcolton@aol.com
