Abe, this makes me wonder if there were other plants that Consolidated owned. I know that the one in White Stettlement became General Dynamics also . I know that the plant is still open there, but now it'sLockheed. Among the folks who lived there at the time we did,it was just called "the bomber plant". I know B-24's were made there among other planes.Since I only turned five yrs old about a week after the war ended, I don't have a lot of memories, but some. I also have pictures of the housing area called Liberator Village. Did the plant in California have housing for the plant workers also? There was an article in the Ft Worth paper a couple of weeks ago-an interview with a lady whose husband was in the service and she moved here from a small West Texas town to work in the plant. My daughter emailed the reporter who did the interview, but he seemed to think all the lady knew was in the interview, as she didn't live in the housing area. We went over to White Settlement a couple of years ago, but the only building left from the developement is now a newspaper office and it was closed at the time. We went to a little museum there that was just opening and was for the town. We didn't find anyting on what we were looking for. I do have another article from the same Ft worth paper in 1990 that tells some information-I will quote some things as it is really interesting, I think- "The aircraft from Lockheed Martin asend abruptly now, but in 1943, lumbering B-24 Liberators struggled over the rooftops. The strain of the engines was a common sound to the thousands of people who lived directly below. They were the people who built the planes, the people of Liberator Village, a community of 6,000 housed in 1,500 government built apartments named for the WW II bombers. Liberator Village was never an official township, never incorporated, never a part of Ft Worth. It was simply a collection of working families bound by the common causes of making a living and supporting the war effort" It goes on to tell that the plant opened in April 1942.The work force was abundant, but not housing,so the government helped finance the building of the plant and the housing also.There were three sections-500 units each. First section was built with whilte asbestos siding and pier and beam(this was the section we lived in.The second was the same only on slab. They were called the "Whites". The third was built with red tiles and called the "bricks". There were four apartments in each "house"-the rent was $34 for one bedroom,$38 for two and $42 for three bedromms. I remember that they were nice apartments, but my mother told of how once she was in our kitchen and called out to my dad in the other room and the man living in the apartment behind us answered her. According to the article, the pay at the plant was seventy cents an hour. It was three shifts at the plant, sowork was continuous. Daddy told how noisy it was at all times-in later years, his hearing got really bad.The article also states that the plant turned out 3,034 B-24 bombers. I wish I knew what Daddy's assembly line job was(ins't it incredible what we don't bother to learn from our families!)I know that a few weeks after the war ended, most of the workers were laid off because the war effort no longer needed them. We had move there from another small Texas town, so we moved back home. In 1950, federal authorities began selling off the Village. The frame structures were demolished and the 500 tiles buildings were left.In 1956, a developer bought the land to build brick homes. Those homes remain, but recollections of the village are nearly exhausted. consoldated became Convair, then General Dynamics and eventually Lockheed. The B-24 Liberator gave way to the B-36, the F-111 and the F-16.
