The Saturday Evening Girls also made products that played off their organization’s name and location, including a set of thirteen tiles that illustrates Longfellow’s famous children’s poem “The Midnight Ride of Paul Revere,” and a related punch bowl. For tourists or interested neighbors they created paperweights and tiles that featured Paul Revere galloping on his horse, or local buildings of historic interest.
