Advert For Matthew's Mechanical Letter Binder
Medium: Print on paper
This is an advertisement for Matthew’s mechanical letter binder. This device would have been very useful in the 19th century office, and the leaflet states that it was used by, ‘railway companies, bankers, merchants, professional men and others’. All written correspondence had to be kept and neatly filed and binders like this would ensure that no documents were lost. Binders similar to these are still used today.
