1920 Washington Ave. – Houston TX (build date unknown)
Charles H. Vogler was born in Houston in 1874 and was a tinner and cornicemaker. His parents, Edward (a machinist and locksmith) and Rosina, were originally from Switzerland and moved to Houston around 1872. Around 1905, Charles and his brother Benjamin started their own company manufacturing galvanized tanks, gutters, flues, and sheet metal and in 1909 he was granted a patent for a self cleaning (mosquito-proof) tank. Charles ran the Vogler company into the 1920s and probably until his death in 1931.
