Columbus Builders walk funny

old Columbus Builder's Supply matchbook cover.

I discovered that Columbus Building Supply is still a family concern in business even today. Since 1907! It speaks well of their management.

At some point they got rid of this mascot. Let’s face it, he looks clumsy. I think he was supposed to be built like a brick shithouse, but it didn’t translate well. I wonder what his name was? The brickster? The immortal Mortar Man?

I wish them many more years of prosperity. These family businesses are the backbone of America. Brick britches notwithstanding.
