L. Ronney & Sons started out as a furniture factory in 1914. During WWII, the company began selling scooters called 'Jeepettes' for the Navy. They were primarily used on airbases to get mechanics, etc around the long distances. After the war, the company tried unsuccessfully to market the Jeepette to consumers, and L. Ronney & Sons eventually abandon the scooter market to focus back on furniture again. The company was sold in 1958, and the factory was torn down in the mid-1960s. Jeepette's still have a legacy among a small group of scooter enthusiasts http://www.usscootermuseum.com/jeepette.htm .
