Museum - Ephemera : Manufacturers & Merchants
Small shop or giant smoke belching factories, manufacturing brought affordable, tools, machinery and supplies to the Trades. Then as now, merchants, both wholesale and retail provide the link between the manufacturer and the consumer.
Within these pages you will find examples of the ephemera that made up the daily life of manufacturers and merchants. As with all ephemera, this material meant to serve a brief purpose and then to be tossed out and forgotten.
