New Britain Industrial Museum Celebrates 'American Hardware Day' on Sept. 7
Mark it on your calendar, people: Saturday is American Hardware Day, and that means the New Britain Industrial Museum holds court from 10 a.m.-4 p.m., displaying items from American hardware manufacturers P.F. Corbin (that's one of their old logos, pictured above) and Russell & Erwin. Featured goods include historical locks, door knobs, patents and hardware for the fallen World Trade Center towers. Morris Bellantuono, a hardware veteran, patent-holder and owner of many of the items in the exhibit, will be present to answer questions at 1 p.m.
