MANNING MEANS BEST BOWMAN

manning

One of a pair of surviving painted ad signs on East 32nd near Lexington advertises the old Manning-Bowman Company, founded in 1832 and purchased in 1872 by Connecticutters Edward Manning and Robert Bowman. The company was famed for its metalware, and Manning-Bowman pieces are still prized by collectors.

Of course, the sign should be read: Manning-Bowman Means Best.
