For those of us currently missing baseball, here is a photograph of the Rockford Watch Company baseball team, c.1910. The team played in the Rockford Industrial Athletic League for many.
Years ago, I acquired a stereoscopic view of the National Watch Company factory (Elgin), originally photographed by Spencer Manley Adams around 1874. I recently came across a second Adams view.
If you have discovered small inscriptions inside your pocket watch case, you may be wondering if they have any meaning. The short answer is yes - they certainly do have.
Anyone that has seen a movie created by Steven Spielberg can attest to the attention to detail.
