Workday Wednesday

My great grandfather, William Joseph Rueff, Jr founded The Rueff Sign Company in 1912 in Louisville, Kentucky. That company is still in business 103 years later and is still run by the Rueff family.  The company made a variety of signs for all manner of businesses. My great grandfather's cousin, Henry Joseph Rueff founded The Henry J. Rueff Company which was a lighting and fixture company.
