I have been photographing and harvesting photo's from the internet of American Watch Papers for many years and have a few thousand organized by State, by City, by Name. Most as you would expect are 19th century jewelers and retailers. Some are maker's watch papers, e.g. Goddard, Morse, Voight.

I'm glad to share.

I'm also glad to make them all available if we could figure out an easy way to put them on-line in a manner that allows us to add papers and contribute information (some, for example, are difficult to read). One issue we would need to think about is rights. As inferred, many of the pictures were downloaded from auction sites and ebay but perhaps as long as nothing is for profit and kept in our secured research area we're okay.

Not sure if there is enough interest in a project like this.

I'm in for this--probably Steve Mercer can do a format to post the photos on one of our site???
