The Max Levy Building

The Max Levy building

On Saturday the 26th, myself a group of interested community supporters was invited by Gray Area Philly to explore the Max Levy Building. The build is located in lower Germantown near the Wayne Junction train station. Constructed in 1902 at 240 Roberts Avenue, when Max Levy moved from Arch Street in center city Philadelphia. In 2005 Max Levy Autograph move to a new building in Byberry East Industrial Park.

Max and his brother Louis are credit with developing a method of producing a permanently etched glass screen for use in half tone printing in 1875. The process is still used by some companies the printing industry.
