Henry Katz & Co Inc

(Five Fifteen Limited)

(New York, USA)

The company was formed by Henry Katz in 1928 or possibly 1929, introducing the one dollar train and one dollar transformer. The company did not survive the Depression, and ceased trading in 1931, at which point Henry Katz found employment in the then new Hoge toy division.
