This auction is for a Pre 1913 Nissen Wagon Works Catalogue, Salem, NC. In 1834 John Nissen founded the Nissen Wagon Works in Forsyth County. In 1919, just before automobiles begin to dominate the market, the business will produce 50 wagons a day. C. F. Nissen purchased J. I. Nissen Wagon Works and presented this Catalogue and Price list of his celebrated J. I. Nissen Round Hound Wagons. This catalogue is 40 pages and measures 5 3/4" x 3 1/4". It has illustrations of each wagon and prices of each. This is a well written catalogue and price list as it shows great illustrations of each wagon. T isn't a date on the catalogue but Salem didn't merge with Winston until 1913, so it is dated before 1913.
