The lithograph prints are a real treat to see (& these phone pics does not do justice)

Years ago I was employed at Taylor Instruments in Rochester, NY. I happened to mention Raymond Loewy and some of the old timers mentioned that Mr. Loewy had designed some of Taylor's products.

Unfortunately, Taylor had moved some of its operations just a few months before I began working there. The company librarian said that about a hundred years of records ("old junk") had been discarded during the move, and that she could find no records of designs that Loewy may have done for Taylor.

What a shame. There were a couple of scientific instruments (pressure gauges?) in the storeroom which looked like something he may have designed but I have no way to verify that.
