Union Shops



Many signs made in New York from the late 1940s through the 1970s bear small "Union Made" decals. Small numerals on these decals denote which shop made which sign. To date, I have been able to identify only a few of the numeric codes. If anyone reading this can identify more, please e-mail me.
