DescriptionA map of the American Optical Company campus, dated Nov. 23, 1921. The (as yet incomplete) section of the Main Plant on Mechanic Street, Southbridge, Massachusetts is shown, the terraced section was completed in 1937. The dominance and importance of the Quinebaug River is in evidence as it's meandering path is charted leading into the Lensdale Pond. The development of the Lensdale Plant is sketched out with the bridges plotted. In the foreground, two rail road lines are shown running parallel to the East Main Street artery. Lens Street is plotted on the map but this street has since been removed to facilitate the construction of the Southbridge Police Department in its place, on the Common.
