New Addition to the Digital Archive: Lancaster Watch Company Advertisement (c.1883)


This c.1883 Lancaster Watch Company advertisement was graciously digitized by an anonymous member of our community. The promotional publication includes various testimonials from passenger depot employees at the Pennsylvania Railroad in an attempt to associate Lancaster watches with the thriving railroad industry. The “Keystone” and “West End” grades are highlighted in the endorsements praising the accuracy of the company’s watches. This advertisement represents the height of the promising young company before a downward spiral culminating in complete failure amidst the watch club scandal.
