The Lucia Barrett Collection
Construction of the Cowell Portland Cement Plant
CowellCA.us Home

DocumentsLucia Mae Barrett (April 24, 1914 - October 4, 2010) lived in Cowell until the town was destroyed.  She was able to salvage a  number of documents from the cement plant, as well as a collection of glass negatives of the construction of Cement Plant. 

Special thanks to her son, Duke, who provided the documents and negatives to me.  Some of the negatives are in pretty good shape, and others are just interesting.

According to her daughter, Liz, Lucia passed away peacefully at the age of 96, with her family at her side.  This collection is in her memory.
