SubjectAmerican Optical Company; American Optical Corporation; Southbridge (Mass.)--History; Optical industry--Massachusetts--Southbridge; Historic buildings--New England
DescriptionWith the Common in the foreground, a close view of the buildings from the Clock Tower to the right side is shown. This comprises part of the Main Plant, as it was known. Brick is the main building material for the facade with a stone foundation. A glimpse of the famed formal entrance to the world headquarters of the American Optical Company is afforded. There are two crenels interspersing the long terraced facade. A winter scene where the trees are bare, allowing for a virtually unobscured view of the grandeur of the edifice. The foreground shows the ground has been turned over and deep tracks are in evidence in the earth.
