What better way to make a gauge easier to read in a dark boiler room than to illuminate it? I found one from around 1900 where the bulb was fixed behind the gauge, not always practical. Here's what Ashton Valve came up with.

The 1920 catalog included a few pages explaining the reasons that the Ashton pop safety valve was superior to it's competition.

I love the old advertisement art. Besides some beautiful fonts used for the lettering you can get a good look at many of the other products being advertised. A bit of a time capsule.

I picked up a nice gauge today. 14" pressure gauge made for the Heine Boiler co.

In 1900 The US was negotiating trade treaties with other countries, including France, to reduce the tariffs and sell more US goods overseas. Many US firms contacted the President, McKinley, to express their support for a new treaty. Ashton Valve was one of them.

An old advert from an 1894 periodical "Around the Lakes". It was put out by the Detroit Drydock Company , a ship building company from around the turn of the century. Here is some information about the company.Henry Ford worked there when he was 17.

Ashton Valve only used Jessop Steel, a UK steel manufacturer from Sheffield England for their valve springs. Here is some information about the company. Catalog page from the 1896 catalog.
