This is their Manasquan sea girt plant built 1918. It was operational until 1942. During World War two the space was leased by Army Signal Corps. 1946 it was reopened with a former Imperial employee as manager under the name of Trent Trading Company which made art pottery and novelties. Look for the tops of the beehive kilns just north of the Freehold and Jamesburg Agricultural Railroad (coming from the west ) junction and high way over pass. North south line is NY&LB now used by New Jersey Transit. National Guard complex on far right just after NY&LB is still used. Any Imperial attributed multi-parts out there as it said in an article the Manasquan plant made high tension insulators.
