There is very little info on line about the United Metal Good Mfg. Co., of Brooklyn, NY. It appears that Abraham Levy was the founder of The Sessions Company which was a division of United Metal Good Mfg. The first "carnival clocks" accredited to the company are from 1905. The height of their fame was in the 1930’s and 40’s. They incorporated in 1931. Mr. Abraham Levy died in 1961. In August 1968 United Metal Good Mfg. Co. bought Sessions and then at the end of the year both companies closed completely.
That makes the age of carnival clocks between 1905 and 1968.
For you Sherlockians, did you know that the Hansom cab was the taxi/cab of choice by the fictional character Sherlock Holmes. It would speedily and safely get Sherlock to the crime scene.
What do you think? :)
