The Colt Safety Products sign at 8300 Manchester Road has come down as part of the demolition of the building, which revealed an earlier sign: for the Wright Leather Specialty Co.
The building was built in 1955, according to St. Louis records. The Missouri Secretary of State has a record of a Wright Leather Specialty Co. formed in 1924, with an office at 311 N. Lindbergh Boulevard. It was voluntarily dissolved in 1987.
Denver M. Wright was the registering agent for the company.
