Harry Goodman

Harry Goodman began Goodman Decorating Company in 1927. Harry was known as the “ Mayor of Peachtree Street” due to his ever present sales calls on the department stores and other businesses that lined Atlanta’s downtown during this time.

Harry Goodman was also known as “Hurry G” for his penchant for getting work done quickly, and his robust style and work ethic. He was once written about in an article in the local journal for getting a house painted in less than 5 minutes, in which he used most of the Goodman painting force.

He was a consummate marketer and used many advertisements around the city on small billboards, making comments on the state of the world or why you should use Goodman for your painting needs.
