Item Information

Title:
American Optical Company looking south with Southbridge in the distance
Description:
Looking south, at the American Optical campus from the rear, surrounded by the town of Southbridge. The Quinebaug River, with a foot bridge, crosses through the campus adjacent to the buildings. A mound of dirt and some evidence of construction are on view to the right side. The campus area, in the foreground, has a sense of vastness created by the trees, scrub growth and saplings. An interesting view of the church steeples is afforded.
