JUST IN FROM CINCINNATI: Bryan Risinger comes in hot with a sturdy logo from the F.H. Lawson trash can company. Thank you, buddy. So good. Here’s some stuff Bryan dug up about it:

F.H. Lawson Co., Cincinnati, produced metal trash cans and garbage pails. The company was founded in 1816 and had a successful run for several decades. However, it became burdened by financial difficulties that were precipitated by a leveraged buyout in the 1970s, and F.H. Lawson Co. finally ceased operations in early 1988. The Witt Co., Cincinnati, whose founding family had known the Lawson family for many years, purchased the remaining assets of the business later that year.

€œWhen it came to metal receptacles, the F.H. Lawson company was the biggest,€ says Ramaley. €œWhen plastic receptacles were first introduced by Rubbermaid and Continental, that made business very tough for F.H. Lawson. It used to be that the good garbage cans were all galvanized steel, and that was their specialty.€

See you learned yerself something today at the DDC. Come back sometime soon. Thanks, Bryan!
