1909-1910 Railroad Time Book issued by Auto-Brand Overalls. Auto-Brand was produced by Lewis Meier and Company in Indianapolis, Indiana. A couple of interesting things about this time book are that each page has different text and the original owner was a woman, Mary Rapp. She used this book from 1910 to 1919.

Headlight Overalls Railroad Time Book issued by Headlight Overall Manufacturing Co./Larned, Carter & Co., Cincinnati, Ohio. I posted the book as being from 1930-31, but the calendar inside the book is for 1933-34. The original owner, Edwin Wickman, didn't use the book until 1936. If you look closely at the calendar, you'll notice it was glued over another calendar. I don't know if this modification was done by the publisher or Mr. Wickman. I went into Photoshop and was able to pull up the original calendar which was 1930-31. You can see this image below.

1930-31 Crown Overalls Railroad Official Time Book put out by The Crown Overall Manufacturing Company in Cincinnati, Ohio. While the calendar inside the book is for 1930-31, this book was used by the original owner from June 1935 to September 1935. I found the Help in Case of Accidents and Antidotes for Poison a very interesting read.
