Founder’s Mark on a Cast-Iron Storefront

Last week old Pa Pitt published this picture of a cast-iron storefront on 18th Street, South Side.

Today, walking past the same building, he noticed an inscription at the base.

This is the mark of the founder who cast the storefront, and we see that it was a very local business: East Birmingham was the borough that went from today’s 17th Street to about 27th Street.
