I have not as yet written the story of Wm. Vogel tinmakers, of Brooklyn, NY.

In the interim, you might enjoy seeing the illustrations for the exhibit.


    Brooklyn’s Wm. Vogel & Bros. is best known for 1890’s sports themed tin boxes made in two colors, three sizes and five different images. Boxes were made for Chas. G. Wells & Co. and for Tower & Wells in Binghamton, NY, a major cigar city. Wells, at his peak, employed more than 100 rollers. Boxes most often carry the federal ID:  Fact. 714, 21st Dist. NY.
