1909-10 Auto-Brand Overalls Railroad Time Book

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.


  1. Thanks for the amazing post! I live in Indianapolis and make vintage inspired western and work wear so it's great to see that there is a history of workwear being produced in my city.

    1. The state of Indiana has a long history of producing workwear. Even Levi Strauss produced garments out of Frankfort, Indiana. Thanks for liking the post.

  2. did you see the Deadstock Auto Brand Work Pants that were on Ebay about a year ago...hammered-down at $5000+!

  3. Have those images archived. Also have some other Auto-Brand images stored away. You've had some great posts recently. Keep up the good work. As always, thanks for checking out the blog.
