Transcript We Cover Three City Blocks McKinney Ave. at Ennis THE LARGEST RETAIL YARD IN THE SOUTH AND SOUTHWEST We take this means to congratulate the Guardian Trust Company and its officers on the occupancy of their new banking rooms. It was also our pleasure to furnish all the lumber in the construction of the Niels Esperson Building...which is indeed a credit to all the Southland. Long Leaf Yellow Pine Lumber Cement, Plaster, lime, Wallboard, Brick and Shingles HERMAN HALE LUMBER CO. Houston , Texas Phone Fairfax 6156 Above is pictured the huge Mosler-Donsteel vault door-weighting approximately 30 tons- installed in the new home of The Guardian Trust Company, Houston. Donsteel represents the ultimate in Scientific Protection, being designed to resist burglarious attack by oxy-acetylene torches and drills. Repeated tests conducted in the leading independent testing laboratories have proven the ability of Donstell to resist these modern methods of attack. The installation of a Donsteel Vault Door by The Guardian Trust Company exemplifies the progressive policy of this institution. THE MOSLER SAFE CO.
