Below are scans from more Revere and Telechron catalogs. Jay Kennan sent me these scans and allowed me to offer them on this website. Notice how the prices came down after 1929. The clocks became smaller. The emphasis was no longer "spare no expense" but rather how "affordable" these clocks were. Sales of Herschede and Revere clocks went down by 84% during the Great Depression: in 1929 the company employed about 300 workers and had sales of $1.2 million, but four
years later, annual sales would be reduced to $187,000.
