Randall-Faichney manufactured automotive parts on Amory avenue, off Amory street and along the east side of the railroad tracks just north of Boylston station. For some reason, they give Jamaica Plain station (Green street) as an address. Perhaps they were using the post office as their mail drop. They later started producing medical supplies, including syringes. The spark plug listed above seems to have been patented in 1914.
Advertisements like the one shown above are being cut out of old magazines and sold as collectibles, so if your grandparents have piles of magazines, hold on to them.
