Frank Winfield Woolworth (1852 - 1919) established in 1879 a five-cent store at Utica, N.Y., which failed, and the same year he started a successful five-and-ten-cent store at Lancaster, Pa. Woolworth opened many others and soon extended business throughout the United States and to several foreign countries. In 1911 the F. W. Woolworth Company was incorporated with ownership of over 1,000 five-and-tens, and Woolworth became director of various financial firms. He had the Woolworth Building erected in New York City in 1913, the highest building in the world (792 ft/241.4 m) at that time.Issued Canceled Dated 1970s American Bank Note Condition VF NY-New York Retail and Related Department Stores Famous Companies Female Subject Male Subject Globe Featured Laboratory Equipment Featured
