Patently on a Roll

Posted in: Fun

Holder for Toilet Paper Patent 741,988

In my regular searches for Tierneys in New York in the late 1800s and early 1900s I stumbled upon this tidbit.

Apparently a circa 1903 John J. Tierney patented this wonderful design for an updated toilet paper holder.

I do not know of any familial connection, but if I find one I’M GONNA BE RICH!

Ah, probably not.

You may read the full and complete patent here, if you are in need of some reading material. Ahem.
