  • I Googled about this “Frank E Davis Fish Co.” and found interesting facts… one of them is that the cookbook goes for about $150 current dollars for the original copy (IF I got that right) wow
    can someone tell us more about the history of this company.. are any products on the market still? Thank you


  • I have good memories of the Frank E. Davis Fish Co. My grandmother, Grace Enos (mother of the late “Doc” Enos) worked there in the early 50’s as a bookkeeper. My sisters and I would drop into the office on the way home from Woolworth’s or Kresge’s to see her. She use to show us off to her co-workers and always had a stash of candy bars in her desk.


    • thank you for explaining that Donna… I wonder the years of operation, where was it located and more history and maybe old photo’s about the place. I apreciate tihs bit of info too..
