The program provides an overview of the evolution, distribution and imagery of 19th century advertising trade cards with a special focus on horology. These cards were an integral part of many Victorian homes, often appearing in prominently placed albums. The art work provides an interesting view of turn-of-the-century American life and industry. This program was presented at the 2014 NAWCC National Convention by Pat Holloway.
Pat is currently a program manager with a global professional services firm. Much of her spare time focuses on early American dollar watches, primarily gathering examples and gleaning information from late 19th century advertising to provide insight into everyday life.
