If you have a few minutes, I found that the history of this company was a fascinating read.

  1. Wow! My Great Uncle Artie used to work here from the 50s to the 70s I believe as a janitor. This hunk of building is still around in Brooklyn - you can see it from the BQE. I always think of him when I drive passed :)

    My uncle, who passed away just recently from cancer, has had a pretty fascinating history too - I wrote about him on my blog if you're interested:

    Thanks again for giving me a wonderful reminder of Uncle Artie!

  2. Awesome, thanks Tara.

    Let me know if you'd like this little bit of Estes history:

  3. I saw your link to the Estes page at the bottom, and followed it up with a read of the company history. Fascinating indeed. This is great stuff, and part of the reason I like it so much (I mean the blogging) is it allows me to learn something that I didn't know yesterday. I believe I came across an Estes billhead in a ledger I examined from a turn-of-the-century Virginia City, MT, general store this past weekend. I'll now have to go back through a 1000+ billheads to find it if I really saw it.
