Now the firm buys s of merchandise in one order. Forty years is a long: time and a short time, according to the view point. r orty years in the life of a nation is little. r orty years for a business enterprise is a long time. iremandous changes have taken place in business methods within forty years. In the beginning there were no duplicate sales tickets, no telephones no adding machines, and the modern cash register on today was unthought of but the laws of business were the same then as now and the elements for success in all time have not changed. To succeed forty years ago, one had to be a fair tradesman, aggressive, just as daring as one must be now, but able to distinguish between an ap proximately safe and unsafe business opportunity. When Leopold Loeb began his business career in Morgan City there was very little business, in fact there was very little of Morgan City There were no modern conveniences such as we enjoy today. Leopold Loeb started when the south was in the recovery stage from the effects of the great war between the States. The great west was then a great solitude. San Francisco the city of the greatest fair was then not more than a mining camp. Los Angelos was a Mission house for Monks. When Leopold Loeb started in Morgan City railroading was in a crude state. There were no breechloading guns, and the Colts revolver was in the making. We doubt that' twenty people living in Morgan City then ate residents of Rïoi gar. Ci£v today. Two generations are a long time- when the life of man is the standard of measure. Leopold Loeb & Sons Lid. have gone through floods and panics. Mem bars of the firm have seen: Morgan City at its worst and Morgan City at its best. Steadily the house has gone forward, but its business methods have not changed. The sharp trick? of trade are foreign to the spirit of its policy. It is mere than a mere business enterprise, it i3 an institution. To lay the firm is old in years, but stronger in spirit and in action than the youth of 25, a monument to the principle that honesty is the best T>Iicy. _ . Leopold Loeb & Sons Ltd. is the oldest important business in Morgan City. There are man Twhose fathers and grandfathers have bought and are buying from Loenk who will rejoice with the members of the firm during - the year in which the stores usefulness reaches the two-score mark, in celebrating an anniversary in a long career of pleasant business rela. tions * At this time Morgan' City salutes Leopold Loeb and the younger mem bers of the family and wish for them and their business a continued career of prosperity. Ad multos annos. i LEOPOLD LOEB & SONS LTD. Tha firm is the oldest important mercantile institution in Morgan City. It is now fort f years old. During these many years some good, others bad from a business standpoint, the policy has been that honesty is the best policy which makes for permanent success. The store is today in the active, hands of the hands of the sons of the founder. Mr. Leopold Loeb is the ; president; Mr. Ralph Loeb is Treasurer and General Manager of the firm and he enjoys the reputation of being one of the best judges of merchan dise in the State. Joseph Loeb is vice president. He also is president of the j Berwick Bay Fish & Oyster Company, the leading firm of its kind in the parish. The Secretary Sol Loeô~ iff- actively engaged in the business. He j also is the owner and manager of the'beautiful Étey^ljne theatre, and is r. partner in the local agency of the Ford Automobile. The founder, Leopold Loeb has another son, Henry Loeb whoN*Sw® n gaged in the mercantile business in Morgan City, and three daughters, Mrs. M. E. Norman and Mrs. Sam Blqjn of this city and Mrs. Leon Kahn. The store has spoken for itself for many years. Good merchandise at a fair price has been the rule by whith it has succeeded. Today there is no better placé in Morgan City to buy. dry goods, clothing, furnishings and furniture than at Loebs. CIMSTl!
