The nineteenth-century Industrial Revolution in England and America spurred a host of innovations in manufacturing and distribution. To entice a widespread and growing clientele with mass- produced goods hardware, ceramics, textiles, furniture, and moremerchants and wholesalers circulated trade catalogues illustrating their wares. Among these newly affordable consumer products were pocket watches and alarm clocks, needed by middle-class citizens to synchronize their lives to Standard Time, which was instituted in the U.S. in 1883.
American trade catalogues in the Museums collection include The Treasure House of Gifts, published in 1928 by Daniel Low & Co. of Salem, Massachusetts.
