Window from Ampico Factory
By A. B. Bonds

I enjoyed immensely Bill Clark's factory recollections. Here is a question for him, or anyone else familiar with Ampico lore.

I received as a present a stained-glass window that was said to have come from the Ampico factory. It is about two by three feet. It has the word "AMPICO" embedded in a very colorful background, and the bottom of the window resembles a piano keyboard. This was purchased by my sister from a chap in Eugene, OR, who apparently hung around the factory when he was a kid and saved the window from destruction.

Does anyone know anything more about this artifact? Of course, it hangs over my Knabe Ampico B !
