Mending Gold: Union Suit and Peninsular Park | variable | worn union suit from 1930's | This mended union suit is the exact type that were made at the Ypsilanti Underwear Company in Ypsilanti, Michigan. These union suits were made for women consisting of silk and wool or cotton and wool. They were produced from 1880's to the early 1920's along the Huron River. The location of the Peninsular Paper Co. power generator is across the river from where the union suits were made. Currently, the Peninsular Paper Co. power generator is a public park and is one of the last industrial buildings left in this once bustling area of the Huron River.
