Throwback Thursday – 5 Cent Token for the Bar at John Wood Manufacturing

John Wood Manufacturing operated on Conshohocken’s riverfront from 1867 until the 1980’s, when it was purchased and moved to Valley Forge before settling in Oaks where it operates to this day.

John Wood, like other large companies during Conshy’s industrial heyday, operated its own bar. We found this 5 cent token that is “valid at bar only” on EBay.

Wonder if it would work at any of the current drinking establishments!
