Notes Complete record of transactions for a carriage manufacturer, offering insight and specific historical data on the carriage industry during the height of the "Carriage era" in America. As a Bridgeport enterprise, this company has relevance to Long Island as well as to the industry at large since Bridgeport was a carriage-building center, especially before the Civil War, and traded heavily with Long Island.
