Mid-Century Building Letterheads

By 1950, many companies were modernizing their letterhead designs and doing away with building imagery. Some of those who continued to employ such representations were banks, hotels, funeral parlors, cemetery associations and those engaged in building trades.

Here are a few mid-century letterheads (and one footer design) that prominently feature buildings:

Lamana-Panno-Fallo, Inc.
625 North Rampart Street

Loubat Glassware & Cork Co.
510-520 Bienville Street

Albert Weiblen Marble & Granite Co.

The Hotel Monteleone

The Merchants National Bank of Mobile
