We have about 10 of your shirts. When wearing them, you can tell the people that grew up in Rockford by their comments about the shirt. What a great idea.
Rockford Cabinet Company was founded in 1880. After 1895, the RCC rented a portion of the East Rockford Mantel Company at 18th Avenue and 12th Street and they would absorb the mantel company in 1905. The building was expanded in 1920, 1923 and 1925 incorporating the old building into the new additions. The building was considered one of the largest furniture factories in the world at the time. Oscar Landstrom bought the Rockford Cabinet Company in 1923, then sold it to Consolidated Industries in 1928. Starting in 1941, various occupants of the building were W. Shanhouse & Sons, Carter Corporation and Asher Tool. Source: RockfordReminisce.com

Shirt is of very good quality at an excellent price. Great way to make a donation to save a bit of Rockford history and get something in return. I ordered two, one to give to a fellow history buff as a gift.
High-quality print, good quality t-shirt, great cause. Thankful to Bygone for their support of the Rockford Cabinet Company project and for their work to help us not forget some of the great companies and brands of our past.
Im a cabinet designer, born and raised in Rockford, moved to Bend, Oregon and love what I do for a living....so it was sad to see the RCC building burn, but I think awesome that you guys are gonna save history with the portico. Too many times Rockford lets its architectural history go to the wreaking ball... and Im gonna change that by ordering 2 more RCC T-shirts....Im looking forward to telling people the back story of the Rockford Cabinet Co.....Great T Bygone, and a Great Rockford Logo.... Be Proud
