Street clocks such as this one were manufactured by Joseph Mayer and Brothers and often stood in front of jewelers or watchmakers. The clocks sometimes moved with the business when it relocated. This clock later appears at Albert Hansen's location at 1010 Second Avenue.
Austin Seward worked for Pierson and Co., a commercial photography firm that took pictures for Mayer Bros.
