ARTIFACT: Wonderful and rare WWI Era worker photo ID badge for E.A. Laboratories in Brooklyn, New York. Emanuel Aufiero, born in 1882 traveled to America from Italy in the early 1900's. He invented the first motor driven car horn with his brother at E. A. Laboratories, a company the two founded in the WWI Era. The company would go on to sell many automobile accessories to manufacturers and retailers throughout the country. The round, steel worker's badge shows a round cut photographic image and above it reads: "EA LABORATORIES BLYN, N. Y." and beneath the photo: "1052B". This is one of the earliest photo ID badges I have owned, and I believe it to be from the WWI era. Excellent condition too!
