Belknap Letterhead 1917 - Warehouse, Harness Factory, Office and Power Bldg. Furniture Sales, Founded 1840, Incorporated 1880 Belknap Catalog No. 56 Cover 1917

Belknap Hardware &

Manufacturing Company

Louisville, KY USA

1917 Catalog. 3064 pages!

Founded 1840, Incorporated 1880, Belknap was at one time a leading American manufacturer of hardware goods and a major wholesale competitor of retail sales companies The company was founded and managed predominantly by members of the Belknap family and their chosen successors until its demise in 1986. Outsiders with self interests gained a foothold in the company and forced descions that did not benefit the company.

Belknap was one of those huge suppliers that many thousands of independent hardware, feed stores and general stores depended upon for most of their inventory.

I remember many of the autoparts I purchased in the 1970's such as gasket sets and brake parts were manufactured by Belknap.

They were never as good a individual tools and the loose pieces often lost. The piece that survives most often is the "anvil" as it is the most massive piece and has no mechanical complexity.
