    This company was organized in 1865 to make brass
    clock movements, and later made hoopskirt frames, kerosene parlor lamps and the
    first successful kerosene bicycle lamp, exhibited at the World’s Fair in
    Chicago, in 1893. An offshoot from clock movements was a spring motor-operated
    flyfan, forerunner of the modern electric fan; F. R. Wilmot, superintendent,
    designed a crude micrometer, and the company also made incandescent lamp
    sockets. Bridgeport Brass Company produced the first copper wire strung between
    New York and Boston, made many telephonic improvements, features a ‘hard-drawn
    wire,’ various alloys of high tensile strength, and was a pioneer in the
    adaptation of the electric furnace to the brass industry.
