Happy holidays to you too my friend!! And thanks so much for the encouragement.
Hopefully my efforts will result in a semi-steady stream of goodies for you to read.

Ha! No thanks!!

Does anyone know where in Detroit this safe comes from ? I never thought a safe company would be here in Detrot. I like the safe I just opened my safe today , I'm catching up to you . 1 to 9
Indeed, you're off to a great start! As far as the Detroit Safe Company; Terry (Andy) on ALLexperts,com
gives some history HERE
. Andy has 40+ years in the Safe & Vault Industry and shares a great deal of
knowledge there. Though I've never posed a question to him directly, I enjoy looking through his Q&As.
Started by David Osgood Paige (D.O Paige), the company produced safes & locks
from 1865 until 1919, when it was acquired by the Diebold Safe & Lock Company.
