Penn Petrolatum Company Business Card

Penn Petrolatum Company Business Card

A business card for the Penn Petrolatum Company once located in Coraopolis. This was found in the attic of the Coraopolis Station. Penn Petrolatum was located at 4th Ave and Chess St (the south corner, away from the river), which is the current site of St. Vincent de Paul Thrift Store parking lot. (Thank you to Henry Thompson for his research.) They were in operation during the late 1890s and early 1900s.
