I just picked up a circa 1895 copy of an Ashton catalog. Only 12 pages! The one for 1896 had 75 pages.

In 1903 there was a bill before congress to shorten the work day for laborers on government work to 8 hours. Here was the Ashton Valve response.

Some background on this bill.

There were many companies producing and distributing whistles for locomotives, steamships, factories, and such. Here are a number of those companies.
