Answer: B. Anthony Pasin started building wooden toy wagons to carry around his tools. He named them after two famous men of the day: Marconi and Lindberg. They originally sold for $3.00 each and became so popular that even during the Great Depression, 1,500 of these wagons rolled off the assembly line every day. The company is still owned by the Pasin family.
