Pittsburgh Signs–Beckert Seed Company

Continuing with the Pittsburgh Signs and Murals project, I give you the remnants of the Bekhert Seed and Bulb Company formerly on Liberty Avenue in Downtown Pittsburgh. This faded sign is all that is left and can be seen from Market Square.

Many major cities had seed and bulb companies in the early 1900’s. Centralization and mass production in places like Holland Michigan made it difficult for small operations to survive.
