I am a collector of old cloth nail aprons, primarily from Michigan however I will take them from anywhere. Why do I collect them? To try to preserve the past. Many are discarded into the trash or fire barrel over time. I have, to date, 139.
For those of you who live in and around the Detroit area, I have some aprons from that area. I am looking for answers to question concerning those lumber companies. From time to time, I'll post questions about these items as I receive the aprons. I would certainly appreciate your help in re-discovering our past.
Restrick Lumber Co., When did they go out of business? The lumber company started in 1884 and became incorporated 1908. The lumber company was located at 1000 West Grand Blvd., Detroit
