The Alexandria, Virginia firm Desmond and Wiley sent out this Christmas card. I'm guessing it was sent in the late 1920s. The only reference I can find on the Internet to Desmond & Wiley is a disbursement for the purchase of washers by the local pour house.

I don't know much more about the firm. Perhaps one of you does?
