More Hall History

L. Norris Hall Inc.

Having worked in the steel industry for Carnegie since the early 1900's, the entrepreneur Norris opened his own steel warehousing business in 1921 - based in Philadelphia and later also in Wilmington, DE. Surviving the depression, it grew into quite a successful company, later being headed by his son Wallace. The company was finally sold to a competitor in 1972 after 50 years in business.

Here is a matchbook cover from his business that I found on EBAY - you really can find just about anything if you look hard enough on there!
