In 1908, John H. Spanjer, a Holland Dutch immigrant with relatives native to New York, dating back to New Amsterdam days, moved his family from the Chicago area to Manhattan to manufacture signs for the local merchants as they came off the boats to make their fortunes. In route from Ellis Island, many new merchants came to Spanjer for signs, bartering their wares in exchange for the craftsmanship so ingrained into this child of a renowned blacksmith.
