Potthast Bros. Wicomico Street Factory, 1970s


During the postwar period, as business slowed, the number of people employed at Potthast Bros. dropped to around twenty. This photograph shows two cabinetmakers in the Wicomico Street factory in the 1970s. The firm shuttered its doors in 1975, ending an eighty-three year history.
