Topo showing location of Cates HousingIn this 1953 topographic map, the Cates Housing project is directly below the "300" elevation line and to the right of "BM (bench mark - where the surveyor set the transit) It looks like, coming from the center of Willi, that the first entrance would be at about the point where the Fish Market is today.The second entrance was where the driveway closest to Friendly's is today.The houses are grouped and are set back quite a bit from the road and go back as far as the present day Valley St.
West Ave. is seen in the top left corner. Mansfield Ave. runs north/south with red and white lines. The road to WCMH snakes out to the left from Mansfield Ave. The large "T" shaped building seen on the left side of Mansfield Ave. between Valley and Main would be the Vanderman building. Below the "BM" is the "T" shaped Town Farm.

Vanderman's FoundryVanderman's Foundry on Mansfield Avenue. Years before he built the big plant on Mansfield Ave., Vanderman started out with a shop on Church St. and later moved it to Valley St. The inset in the illustration is the Valley St. building. His specialty was first-class plumbing and low pressure steam and hot water heating. By 1878 he was also manufacturing quite a number of his patent plumbing specialties and heavy steel tool chests used by railroads and construction trades. Some of the smaller chests were used by The Wells Fargo Express Co. and were used as boot-boxes on stage coaches.
