Hi Williemac, SH Pomeroy occupied the first floor of the Esty Piano factory from at least the late 1930’s until ~1960’s. They made steel windows for the high rise buildings in Manhattan and some steel studs for other applications. During the war like you stated they made small practice bomb shells. We had two at home, one with the top off and inverted to make a cigarette stand. They also made collapsible stretchers and adjustable seats for tanks. Upstairs was Unique Window Balance that supplied the balance mechanism for the windows. I think Ranger Plastics also had an operation in the building after the war. My father worked at Pomeroy during the 40’s and 50’s. It seemed like all my uncles worked for either Pomeroy or Unique after war when jobs were hard to get. I think my father had something to do with getting them the jobs. Jim M
