In previous blogs we’ve highlighted the Soule family, the Merrell-Soule Company and their relationship to Vanderkamp. Many supplemental documents, images and cited sources can be found in our Northshore Roots genealogy project.
In this blog, we focus on some of the patents that the Merrell-Soule Company produced during the late 1800s and early 1900s. In addition to illustrating the new innovations that the company created, they also exhibit a sort of technical beauty through their mechanical design.
The images below can all be found through Google’s patent search in PDF format. These documents include the original text, that accompanied their filing.
