Hand colored photo from 1931 Original Title: Machine shop at Splitdorf Electrical Corp Photographer: Unknown Location: Newark, NJ
Splitdorf was an American electrical company located in Newark, NJ, that got into automotive ignition components just as cars were becoming popular. They created magnetos, spark plugs, later generators, and starter motors. They became the standard equipment for many US car companies. In 1923, Edison bought them out and they became the Splitdorf-Edison company.
As you can see everything is made by hand on specialized pieces of equipment. Presumably each frame above each lathe probably has the blueprints of the parts they make.
