This Collection is a part of "The Growth of Industrial Art" printed in 1890 by the U.S. Patent Office. These tools and modes of production changed people's way of life as well as how they interacted with a rapidly changing world.  

"Herodotus wrote, four hundred and fifty years be-fore the Christian era, that "the Egyptians prepared a beer from barley not much inferior to wine" -excerpt from Brewing.

"Baggage checks and seals are of modern invention, they consist of tags or labels made of metal to be attached to trunks, boxes, cars, etc, to indicate their destination and points of departure, and the name of railway or steamboat company, or stage attaching the check." -excerpt from Baggage Checks and Seals
