1883: TRENTON'S FITZGIBBON AND CRISP

It was really fun gathering these graphics relating to Trenton's very famous carriage and wagon company. The above article from the Daily State Gazette tells the interesting story of how the company which was formed after the acquisition of the Union Carriage Company, and went on to become one of the most respected manufacturers of quality carriages, and in later years automotive coach works. Their incredibly beautiful detailing is seen on the 1917 Jeffrey Fire engine which I found at the Lawrence Road Fire Company website. I removed a few of the crease marks in order to enhance the photo.
