Hi Frank,

The Eaglo Paint and Varnish Corporation was located at 49-20 Fifth St. in Long Island City. It was established in the early 1900s. Herbert E. Hillman was Technical Director for many years.

Attached [below] is an ad for Eaglo Paint that appeared in the Bridgeport Post on May 11, 1973.

The New York-New Jersey metropolitan area was home for many of the largest paint manufacturers such as Sherwin-Williams and Benjamin Moore. The raw materials for paint, namely pigments, solvents, resins and additives, were readily available from local industries.

This lush pentimento near Liberty & Logan still bore the faded slogans “Children Cry for Fletcher’s Castoria” and the non-sequitur “Jesus Never Fails.”
