Item Information

Title:
American Optical Company: alley detail (south view)
Description:
Elongated southerly view of the rows of buildings perpendicular to the Main Plant. These buildings were razed in 2000 - except for the façade of the Main Plant - to facilitate the construction of the Southbridge Hotel and Conference Center. A creeper is growing on the lower parts of the buildings. The view provides an insight into the sheer size of the buildings - on the left side the building is four floors high and the building on the right is five stories high. The clock tower with its tall spire is pointing majestically in the background.
