New York has Brooks Brothers, New Haven has J. Press, and Philadelphia had Jacob Reed’s Sons. Closed since 1983, Jacob Reed’s Sons is long gone but far from forgotten [for example – here, here, and here]. I have heard many stories of this venerable institution over the years (to bad I did not write any of these stories down).
The firm published a small (40 page) pamphlet to commemorate their 100th anniversary in 1924. I was lucky enough to purchase this pamphlet about two years ago. I know I purchased it on eBay, but I don’t remember how much I paid. Now if I could only find a history of Miller/White!
