Narrative: The largest establishment in this country for the manufacture of brass work and plumbers' goods, is that of Hayden, Gere and Company, at Haydenville, a pleasant village on Mill river, in Massachusetts, on the extreme western border of the Connecticut valley, six miles from Northampton, on the line of the New Haven and Northampton railway. A hundred years ago, that region was an unbroken wilderness. The first settler there was John Miller, a stout beaver-trapper. The first mill erected on the site of Haydenville, for manufacturing purposes, was built by Daniel and David Hayden, in 1809, where, with Seth Thompson and Melitier Everett they began the manufacture of cotton-yarn with one hundred and twenty-eight spindles. The business was very flourishing during the war with Great Britain that soon afterward broke out, their yarn selling as high as one dollar a pound. When peace came the business declined, and in 1822, the mill was closed. Then the late ex-lieutenant governor, Joel Hayden (who died in 1873), nephew of the original mill-owners, with James Congdon, began the manufacture of power-looms in the old building. In 1851, Joel Hayden and A. D. Sanders began the manufacture of plumbers' goods on a small scale, occupying the button factory for the purpose Associated with them were Sereno Kingsley and Edward W. Gere, with the firm name of Hayden, Sanders Co. The business rapidly increased, and it was carried on extensively by Hayden, Gere and Company (Collins Gere) when, on the morning of the 16th of May, 1874, the Williamsburg dam from which water-power was supplied for manufactories, suddenly gave away. A destructive flood of water swept down the valley, demolishing many buildings and destroying about one hundred and fifty human lives, in the villages of Williamsburg, Haydenville and Leeds. The great establishment of Hayden, Gere and Company, consisting of nine brick buildings, was utterly destroyed. All that remained of the nine buildings was about one-half of the upper shop. The work of reconstruction immediately commenced, and the present buildings were erected, in which when in full operation, there are 400 persons employed, who produce about 1,000,000 worth of goods annually.

TURKEY Trebizond on Black Sea - 1887 Wood Engraving


This old engraving has substantiated and stimulated a recent interest of mine; this physical thing now hangs in front of my reading chair, and I have found the digital copy of the charming old book from which it was cut (VOYAGES AND TRAVELS OR SCENES IN MANY LANDS VOLUME
de Colange, Leo (Ed.)).
Published by E.W. Walker, Boston, MA (1887))
I recommend enjoying some of the 19th century paintings under "Trabzon in art" in commons.wikipedia., which is where I first discovered this one. In some of these it is the artists viewpoint of serious (not ) peacefulness that I especially enjoy, and now this is substantiated, in front of my reading chair.
