Salz Tannery lunchroom

This photo of the Salz Tannery lunchroom was taken sometime during the mid-1950's. According to Jeremy Lezin, Salz was one of the very few companies in the 50's and early 60's that hired African Americans. As a point of interest, Helen Salz, Ansley's wife, co-founded the ACLU in San Francisco. In the 1950's the Salz workforce numbered about 60. In the 70's that grew to as many as 350. At the end in 2001, there were approximately 100 employees.
