Narrative: The city of Worcester, whose Indian name was Quinsigamund, is a very important railroad as well as manufacturing center. Six or seven lines of railroads meet there. It is also the dwelling place of the eminent American Antiquarian Society. The house was really founded in 1786, when Pliny Earle began the manufacture of hand-cards, and used only a dozen calf-skins the first year. Afterward cow-hides were used, and in 1843, (when the establishment was transferred from Leicester to Worcester), the consumption was about 2,000 hides a year; now about 30,000 are consumed annually in the establishment. These hides are tanned expressly for the factory of T. K. Earle and Company, and are finished on their premises; and so careful are they to employ the best stock, that from a side of leather weighing thirteen pounds, only about four pounds are selected. The buildings of this establishment are of brick, the, main one 185 feet by 45 feet in size, with a tower for stairs. In the basement they re-tan and curry their leather, and finish it on other floors. The works are propelled by steam-power. At the beginning (1786), the capacity of the establishment was for a product of 1,000 a year. The capital was 500, and the actual product was 200. In 1843, the capacity was 10,000; the capital 8,000 and the product 10,000. Their capacity is now 180,000 and the capital 150,000 (Card clothing is a term applied to the species of comb used in the manufacture of cotton and woolen cloth, for the purpose of carding out and arranging the fibers, preparatory to spinning.)

TURKEY Trebizond on Black Sea - 1887 Wood Engraving

Full star smallFull star smallFull star smallFull star smallFull star small

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.
