At the Boston archives center I was able to copy the company's tax assessment records from 1879 and on. Total value of equipment and inventory.....$1000.00 then, and now?

$1,000 in 1879 → $25,675.90 in 2019

In their catalogs they offered a number of testing devices for boilers and gauges.

Association member photos. Many of the Ashton Valve executives and sales force belonged to industry groups.

The company also offered engine room clocks. They made the clock bodies and the clock works were made by Chelsea, Howard, or Seth Thomas.

In the 1896 catalog there are a few items that were not produced by Ashton Valve but are related to the industry. Here are pages of a few of them.

The Railroad Edition of the Instruction book #17 offered repair parts for many of the Ashton items. Virtually everything could be repaired, unlike today where virtually everything is thrown away.
