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

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.
