I inherited this desk from my grandfather who had it in his Printing Shop in Camden, NJ from 1910-1950. He said that it was used when he bought it. It is quite large, stands 5 feet tall and has three pull out drawers. I have never seen another one like it until I was looking through some old books of Vineland, NJ and came across an identical desk which stood in the office of the Welch's Grape Juice office! I would like to know if you can identify what kind of desk it is and what year. Thank you.

    I have always considered these to be Railroad desks, but would imagine that this type of desk would fit any category of clerks desk. They were made to be high enough that whoever was working at the desk would be on a stool rather than an office chair.
