    For over 100 years the safety valve was the staple item in their product line.

      They often packed a lot of information into their ads.

        In 1892 the company purchased the Boston Steam Gauge Company and entered the gauge market. It wasn't long before the gauges earned the same reputation for quality the safety valves had. Today the gauges on ebay go for good money.

              The old journals had some great adverts of gauges.

                  The company had numerous patents, including these gauge patents.

                      At a steam show a few years back I was given an original stock certificate from 1877. I recently picked up an invoice from 1888.
                      I'm also posting the Ashton gage production chart that tracks the serial numbers and the years the gauges were produced from 1895 to 1922.

                          Steam whistles were also produced by the company for marine ships, Locomotives, stationary boilers,and factory rooftops. These are from the 1906 catalog.
