The History The Edw. K. Tryon Company of Philadelphia.​




The Edward K. Tryon Company was a sporting goods retailer and wholesaler located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. They were in business under various Tryon names from 1811 until sometime in the mid to late 1950s. Edw. K. Tryon was the largest sporting goods retailer in the United States and possibly the world for some time. Their primary business was firearms and hunting related items but they also sold and produced a wide variety of outdoors and sports items. These were sold under a variety of trade names such as Apollo Bicycles, Keystone Shotguns, Pennell Fishing Reels, Imperial Fishing Rods, Gold Medal Fishing Hooks and Tryon-Tru-Temper Cutlery. Their primary trade mark was the “Sign Of The Golden Buffalo”. Below is a history of the company from it's earliest beginnings in 1773 and to it's official founding in 1811 through the 100th Anniversary celebration in 1911. They had a 125th anniversary celebration in 1936 and produced catalogs until at least some time in the mid to late 1950's but I am not sure until when.
