Excerpt: ...miserable slop, birdcage manufacture constantly in circulation on the market, but genuine homemade, serviceable and well finished work that is honestly worth its marketable value as a gold dollar is worth one hundred cents. In this line of business we should also mention Wherry & Beltz, of 809 Market, and D. Kull, of 2004 Market street. WAGON BUILDERS. It is something surprising, and to many almost totally unknown, the extent to which the manufacture of wagons is carried in this city. Nor is it a new feature in the local business prestige of Wheeling. The present works of JOHN BODLEY BROTHERS, located at 1724 Chapline street, employ an average of twenty hands and does a magnificent trade. The orginal firm was established some thirty-five or forty years ago as Bodley & Richards, and it has attained exceptional popularity for its matchless manufacture. They build all kinds of heavy wagons, carts and drays, for the western lumber trade, and southern cotton and sugar producing interests. Their wagons vary from five to ten feet wheels, and in strength are unexcelled. They ship about the whole of their manufacture, and consequently bring in quite a revenue to the aggergate earnings of the city s industries. In a small, but still successful way, the following firms also conduct wagon manufacture in Wheeling, B. & J. N. Charnock, Twenty-Second street; Donaldson, Lewis it Co., Market street; Jacob Ridemiller, National Road; S. J. Ellifritz, corner Market and Twenty-fourth streets; J. F. Klopman, corner Main and Twenty-third streets; David Kull, Main street; J. Merschrod, corner Jacob and Fortieth streets; Wm. McNabb, Twentieth street; L. Neuberger, Twenty-third street; M. Stein, north side National road, Fulton; A. G. Stoker, Chapline street....show more
