Safe Capital of the World

Safe Capital of the World. A City of Hamilton slogan for several decades.

The combination of Mosler and Herring-Hall-Marvin safe companies "gives Hamilton nearly 50 percent of the world's safe and vault production," noted They Built a City: 150 Years of Industrial Cincinnati by the Federal Writer's Project of the Works Progress Administration, published in 1938. (See Mosler Safe Co., Herring-Hall-Marvin Safe Co. and Macneale & Urban Co.)
