December 16th 1874

"The great store of the Meriden Britannia Company, at No. 550 Broadway, is at all seasons of the year one of the sights of New York, but during the holidays it is not to be surpassed; for all the masterpieces of its treasure cupboards are taken out of their cases, and displayed to view."

This article from The New York Times Archives highlights the Meriden Britannia Company during the holidays. People often claim that there is a greater conjunction of buisness and news in the modern period. I think this article, that hardly qualifies as "real news" helps to show that this was never the case.

You can view the article as a .pdf here.
