DescriptionA group of twenty three women, in winter attire, posing in front of the formal entrance to the American Optical Company, on Mechanic Street, Southbridge - the company headquarters. Women are wearing elegant hats and fur muffs as protection from the weather. The bronze door is on view, nestled between the structural columns of the entrance. The granite steps are somewhat concealed by the group as they are standing in tier-fashion. The American Optical Company name is emblazoned over the doorway.
