Brewster & Company of New York, NY, was one of the foremost carriage builder in the United States and the world. For every carriage order taken for a vehicle, a detailed record was made, describing the order information and specifications for the vehicle in detail. Each vehicle was given a vehicle serial number, a very important piece of information for people who own, collect and restore Brewsters..
