The Turtle Wax Headquarters, c.1950’s, in the Wendell Bank Building at Madison, Ogden and Ashland.
Turtle Wax was founded in 1941 by Ben Hirsch, who would hang out in the parking lot at Wrigley and polish bumpers during the game. When people would return to their cars, Hirsch would sell them on the product. He was almost always successful.
Turtle Wax is still based here and privately held by the Hirsch family: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turtle_Wax
