A little history lesson

I was at our local museum tonight and one of the things we are proud of is the former carriage maker we had in town for over a hundred years.  I was looking at one of the carriages circa 1897 tonite and the advertisement that went with it promoted the superb ride on "springs by Brewster, Timken and Elliptic"  Is this the Brewster of coachwork fame or the Timken of bearing history?  I have never heard either made springs but Timken was in Utica, NY about 100 east of here and Brewster was in Mass I believe so they could have been suppliers I suppose.  Does anyone know any history on this?

 

Thanks,
