Seth Thomas Records
The above listing is taken from a Seth Thomas catalog of approximately 1920. It only lists the state, city, and the building in which the clock was installed or the business that purchased the clock--no dates and no model numbers.

This Index is taken from the record book (Books A through W) microfilms. It does not cover Books V and W. That portion of the index was never microfilmed, or no longer exists.
