Read all about B&S here: http://www.coachbuilt.com/bui/b/bohman_ ... hwartz.htm

Bohman & Schwarz split up in 1947.

Quote:
"The partnership was amicably dissolved in 1947, and Bohman formed a new partnership with his son, Lawrence Christian Bohman, called Bohman & Son which was housed in the first floor of the building. Lawrence Christian (Chris) Bohman continued the business after his father's death in Feb. 1950.

Schwartz moved his machinery upstairs and continued building special bodies there until 1951, when he moved to his own building at 1901 E. Walnut St., Pasadena. Schwartz remained active right up until his death in 1961 at the age of 76."


So it seems we need to add two more sections: one for C. Bohman & Son (1947 - present??) and another for Maurice Schwartz Co. (1947 - 1961).
The title at Coachbuilt.com says: "Bohman & Son -1947-present". Does any of you know what has become of this company?

I just found a picture of Maurice Schwartz's workshop, where he worked from 1951 to 1961.
