Perrie & Dalton, 1207 1st Ave. near 65th St., New York, 2009
This was a short-lived partnership between two elusive figures, John J. Dalton and George E. Perrie. Perrie & Dalton, iron founders, were listed in Trow's New York City Directory in the years 1884 and 1885. The foundry was located at 151 W. 29th St. In the following two years, 1886 and 1887, John J. Dalton was in business by himself at 230 E. 38th St. Afterwards, there is no trace of either man. I have not been able to identify either Dalton or Perrie in census reports or other historical documents...
