Has anyone ever heard of a factory around Grand & Homan that made children clothing? It was called either Tumble Tots or as my great aunt who worked there pronounced it Tumble Togs. Anyone know where exactly where the factory was located? Thanks

Tumble Togs makes sense as it refers to clothes.

The brand name is apparently "Tumbl Togs". I've found many ads with them for sale but can't pin down where they were made. There is a link to the patent for "Tumbl Togs" but it can only be accessed by subscription:

I scanned the want ads and came up with two addresses, but neither is near grand

2451 N Sacramento Ave 1940s and 1950s
2075 N Campbell 1960s

Both are near Milwaukee

Thanks all for the information. I will check out all the information that you all provided. I do remember her telling me the day of the Our Lady of Angels fire all employees were wondering what was going on with all the sirens. She told me it was a sound she couldn't get out of her mind.
