Description:
The author visits the A.C. Gilbert factory complex, which (at the time of this article) was sub-divided and leased to individual stores and companies. Includes photos he took at the visit. The pages of this article have another article inserted in yellow, titled "Demise of the A.C. Gilbert Company", which is an excerpt from the Professor Hartley's book "Marketing Mistakes" which devotes a chapter to the Gilbert story. This provides great insight into the company's history of the 1960s.
