Made In Newark Exhibition in Bamberger’s 1913.

“In the 1913 Made in Newark show, more than 50 local manufacturers were installed in Bamberger’s to demonstrate modern workmanship in plain view.

Whitehead and Hoag, one of the countries largest and most innovative manufacturers of novelties, ran a booth on the first floor assembling and distributing their patented pin-back celluloid buttons. They bore the words “Made in Newark” . These are some of the boldest buttons designed in the era, legible at a distance.”  Excerpted from the book Made in Newark by Ezra Shales.Made in Newark Button
