Around the Cleveland area, in the older pre-WWII inner ring suburbs, there’s a good deal of garden and smaller walkup apartment buildings named “The Argosy”. Looking at advertising from the 1920s, I’ve also noticed a large number of products named “Argosy”. The use of the word “Argosy” to name something seems to dramatically fall after WWII.
Question: what the hell is an argosy, anyhow? Google hasn’t helped much.
