    Thank you for the add, I have two large (5’ height) light sconces which I believe were made in the early years of the Wendell August company. I’m trying to find out more about them. I believe they were produced in 1930-32 for a hotel in Titusville, PA during the oil boom. Asking for help, basically need some direction in the search for the hotel.

    Thank you so very much! I have already looked into the Drake and the dates just aren’t matching up. I understand there were several hotels in Titusville during that time frame (built or remodeled in/around 1932-35 and demolished in the 70s). I will be making a trip to the Titusville Historical Society in the near future to continue my search.
    Wendell August lost most of their records in a fire, so that’s a dead end.
    Thank you!

    Good deal. This part of Pennsylvania is quite lovely in the spring.
