Where can you find information about the Chicago business Albert Pick and Co?

I don't know the full range of their business, but I do know Albert Pick & Co manufactured better-grade dishware etc. for the hotel and restaurant trade, everything from cups and saucers to serving dishes and glasses. I also know they were doing business by the early 20th century. A good reference book on collectible hotel dishes might give you dates, as they produced things for establishments all over the place.

When I was a child in the 1940's my father worked at Albert Pick. My father was a sheet metal worker, now I can't imagine what he did there.

Besides dishes, they also provided linens to hotels in the Chicago Loop. My grandmother was a seamstress there. I still have a set of linens she made.
