I think that is VERY cool, and the only one of its kind I've ever seen. Great piece of history!

1877, the company first incorporated in Hartford CT. I recently was able to obtain a copy of the letter from the Hartford Daily Courant which is attached below along with a photo of one of the first stock certificates.

I recently picked up an old pop safety valve. The tag states , "the Crosby-Ashton Valve Co, Wrentham ,Ma so I know it was made after 1948 when the company had merged with Crosby and moved out of Cambridge, Ma to Wrentham, Ma.

Trade show giveaways

Often at a industry trade show, the companies displaying their products will offer customers a little token gift as a thank you or a reminder of what they have to offer. Attached is a picture of some of those giveaways I've collected. The mirror (round with safety valve in middle) is about 3" in diameter. Everything else but the dry shaver is quarter size or smaller.
