My father worked for Barber & Ross

My father, Marty, worked as a salesman for Barber & Ross from the mid-50's til the early-70's. This was after they expanded into the building supply and millwork business.

My family are DC area natives from the 1870's. Wilson and McKinley Tech graduates. My father graduated from GW.

Most of my childhood and early adulthodd was spent in Silver Spring and Kensington MD.

This is a great site. I wish my folks were alive to see it.

Trash Lovers

I can hear their radio ads now: "Let Barber & Ross fulfill all your wastebasket wishes." They also appear to be really into crocks.

Reflections

Wow! Beautiful building reflecting in the hardware store windows. They sure don't make them like that anymore.
