Then and Now, from Signs to Websites.

Started by Ogilvie Stanford in 1879 with the help of Rockwell Gager. Ithaca Sign Works produced cloth, tin and wooden signs; novelties like yard sticks, match safes, knife sharpeners, fly swatters, and spare tire covers. They printed or painted such items as advertisements for other companies all over the country. – Ithaca Sign Works
