Wallet Card at Doehler Metal Furniture

Doehler Metal Furniture was a prominent manufacturer of metal furniture during World War II. It was acquired by Metal Office (now known as Steelcase) in 1936. Their furniture now commands hundreds of dollars at auction. Also visible under the Doehler sign is one for Manning-Bowman, a kitchen appliance manufacturer acquired by McGraw-Edison in 1960. Both of these signs are visible on 32nd Street near Lexington Avenue.

  1. That's apparently a pretty famous wall. I like it. If the company changed it's name in 1946 that sign should be at least 70 years old.
