Is there an old ad or order form with an address? Don't the S&W letters have an address?

No pictures, but I was there in the spring of 1965. (Cold as hell...) As I recall it was a couple if doors down from the PD. A fairly modern (single story?) building, well lit, quite a bit of floor space. LOTS of S&Ws.

Jeez, I feel like the Ancient Mariner.

This is a photo of the Main Chicago PD at 1111-1121 South State in the 1930s. The low building directly adjacent to it probably had a street address in the 1123-1133 range. I'm guessing the four-story building that leaks off the right side of the image is the one in which H.H. Harris Co. operated. I can't find any records of Harris owning a building, so I am assuming he leased space, presumably on the bottom floor of this one.

A photo of taken from the SW corner of the State and 13th intersection would probably show the H.H. Harris location. I wonder if the Chicago Tribune morgue or image collection would have such an image.

EDITED TO ADD: OK, Ignore the nonsensical geography above. I just realized I lost an entire city block. The H.H. Harris building would be on the other side of 12th (Roosevelt?) from the PD, though on the same side of State Street. It cannot be in the same block as the PD. Sorry. I'll leave the photo just for historical interest.

A year or 2 ago there was a member who used to work for Harris posted on the forum I cant remember the thread though. He posted a picture or 2 of the storefront of the Store if I remember right.


Sorry Bill not much help
