Day & Meyer, packing, shipping and storage, was formed around 1894 by Herbert W. Day (1867-?) and Gustave E. Meyer (1862?-?). They were located downtown on 5th Ave (around 27th St.) and on W. 31st St. until around 1906. They relocated to 341 4th Ave. (southeast corner of 25th St.) in 1906 and then moved uptown to 305 E. 61st St. in 1920. And it was around this time that they merged with Murray & Young, movers, to form the present company. Murray & Young were Thomas F. Murray (1887-?) and Chester Forrest Young (1884-1976). –  W.
