    Historical Context

    The Consolidated Engine-Stop Company was incorporated in Connecticut in 1897.

     

    The company offices were in New Haven, and operations were located in New York City and Waterbury, Connecticut.

     

    The company manufactured an automatic engine kill switch that was designed to turn off motors faster in the case of emergency. The engine stop was marketed under the Monarch name.

     

    The company ran ads that featured actual news article clippings of industrial accidents, with an arrow pointing to the clipping and the caption "This Could Have Been Avoided."
