Category 'J.L.B.&S. White Block'

Until now nothing is known about the company itself except that it appears to be another unidentified U.S. importer and/or distributor which obviously imported items from Germany (including Bavaria) and Czechoslovakia. Most people refer to this company merely as 'White Block' as there are varying opinions upon the sequence of the initials used in the marks.
