|Notes||Items donated were manufactured in the Gladd Brothers Company of Saranac Lake, NY between 1942 and 1944. The business started as a boat business in 1928, but quickly expanded and took on the franchise for Ford, Lincoln and Mercury Cars. During World War II, they operated a defense plant employing more than 200 workers, giving Saranac Lake one of the biggest payrolls ever known from its private industry. The Gladd Brothers sold the business in 1949.|
