    Greetings!!

    I am looking for anyone who can help me. I'm looking to find a period photograph of Downtown Chicago from the era's of 1928-1955 with an advertisement for D. DeBartolo and Co. (Company).

    It was a tailor shop owned by my family started in 1929. It was located on Wells St. & Van Buren in Chicago IL.

    I'd love to see a sign, advertisement, the shop itself.

    This is a shot in the dark I know but anyone who collects older photos I'd be eternally grateful.

    Thank you!

    Albert Karoll of Richard Bennett Custom Tailors purchased D. DeBartolo Custom Tailors. He acquired the patterns as well as most of the staff. He may have photos, or people who worked for D. DeBartolo may have photos. Wouldn't hurt to call and ask, or stop in and tell them who you are.
