Throwback Thursday - Bender Shoe Co. Factory

It's #ThrowbackThursday and this week, we have an interesting photo from Somerset County in 1967!

Pictured is the old Bender Shoe Company Factory! After opening in 1947, it was producing mainly Navy Oxford Shoes. Later, it was bought by the Walker Shoe Company and the names were incorporated together into B.B. Walker and in 1979, they began manufacturing the Albilene western boot line.

If those boots were made for walkin', they were made in Somerset County!
