Two stocks. 1) 1952 to Sutro & Co. 2) 1933 to Benjamin Williams. Both have a mountain vignette with a large 'M' imprinted on the mountain. Monolith, California doesn't appear on most contemporary maps. It lies in the hilly southwestern part of California, some 50 miles east of Bakersfield. The nearest city, Tehachapi (famous for its women's prison), is about four miles away. The story of Monolith Portland Cement begins around the turn of the century when the Los Angeles Board of Public Works set out to supplement its water supply from beyond the Los Angeles basin. By 1906 the City had secured a deed to water from the Owens Valley on the eastern side of the Sierras and begun development of a facility to convey the water to L.A. The construction of a cement plant at Monolith, California was one of the first aspects of the project undertaken by the City. (Prag collection)
