Advertising sign, Please read the full description, Cast metal 9 ¾” by 3 ½” 1 8” thick, has four drilled holes for mounting, would have been prominently affixed to a Rail Road building structure, as the previous owner stated. The Ducker Company was in business in New York as early as 1904. H. J. Brainerd was the master mind of these structures. THE DUCKER PORTABLE STRUCTURES, manufactured by DUCKER COMPANY, 277 Broadway, New York, received the highest commendation from engineers, City, State and National officials, and railway companies by whom they were extensively used. The DUCKER patented, portable construction was recognized by the United States government as THE ABSOLUTE STANDARD OF EXCELLENCE and many Ducker Patent Portable structures were erected for the War, Navy and Interior departments. These structures were particularly well adapted for off the railroad and mining camps use. The Santa Fe Railway Co had 21 of them constructed.
The DUCKER buildings were frequently seen in New York, having been adopted by the Board of Rapid Transit Commissioners in countless places along the line of the subway and railway, and they are also on view in all of the small parks where the NATHAN STRAUSS milk depots stand for the benefit of the poor of the municipality.
