A. Flanagan Co.
Chicago, IL
1880s - 1930s

History

 

A. Flanagan Company was a publishing and supplies business located in Chicago, IL.  There isn't a lot of information on the history of the company.  It looks to have started around the 1880s and to have been in business at least into the 1930s as the crayon references came from a 1932 catalog that had pictures for two of their crayon brands.  It is unknown when they first started producing crayon products or how long they continued to produce them.  No examples of their crayon products have ever surfaced to date.
