Time Recorder by Warwick Time Stamp Co.

Time stamps and other methods of monitoring employees were developed with the rise of general office technology, such as cash machines, towards the end of the 19th century. The National Cash Register Company gave away time clocks and stamps with the purchase of a cash register. This is a standard type of time stamp made and used from about 1890 until the 1930s.
