Good Manufacturing Co. San Francisco - Niagara Falls, Canada.

The Good Mfg Co. was a plumbing supply co. which was sold and became Crest/Good Mfg in New York in 1965. i think that this must have been a an early piece of theirs from around when they started in the 1890s, but am not sure. what a great little toolbox! i picked it up at the Alameda Pointe Flea Market a couple years ago. it's filled w/ little rusty things i use in my sculptures.

The San Francisco - Niagara Falls, Canada words are a mystery to me - couldn't find any info on that.

When do you think it was made and do you know what the sf-niagara falls means?

    I would assume they had mfg. facilities in those locations, it's easier to ship raw materials than finished product.
