By Larry Koster
This book tells the story of how a small industry in Carthage, North Carolina, developed into the largest carriage manufacturing factory in the South. At their peak, the Tyson and Jones Buggy Company built as many as 3,000 high-quality vehicles per year because of excellent management, a very experienced work force, and the latest equipment and tools. However the company was slow to adopt any new product lines and the automobile industry and a looming depression resulted in their bankruptcy.
