Yesterday, shortly after posting the blog, I received an email from DB with a photo attached.
It included a picture with another Converse patent with advertising, this one reads:
HOLIHAN BROS, WHOLESALERS TO THE PEOPLE, LAWRENCE, MASS
After doing a little research, it seems that the Holihan Bros. (James P., Joseph P., and Charles A.) not only were the “wholesalers to the people,” they were also brewers to the people, producing Diamond Spring Beers!
Thanks for the email Don!!! One more for the list.
What other Converse patents are there with advertising? Send in photos or information to firstname.lastname@example.org
