From the original description: These works are situated on the corner of Hampden and Albany streets, in Boston. The main building is of brick, four stories in height, with basement 200 feet in length, and 60 feet in width. The machinery in this is driven by a double horizontal engine of 200 horse-power. There is a double set of upright steam pumps of 20 horse-power each. Another brick building, same height, 55 feet in length, and 40 feet in width, is used for a carpenter's shop and for storage. In that building the machinery is driven by an engine of 15 horse-power. Besides these, there is a corroding house of brick, two stories in height, 205 feet in length, and 70 feet in width, and another of wood, 83 feet in length, and 32 feet in width; also a brick building, three stories in height, for oxide of lead and cooperage department, in which machinery is driven by a horizontal engine of 25 horse-power. There are other buildings occupied by blacksmiths and machinists, for stables, storage, and sheds; the whole works occupying about three acres of ground. On the premises of the Boston Lead Company are manufactured annually, for the sending of their white and red lead and litharge to market, about 80,000 kegs. In their machine, carpenter, and blacksmith shops is performed all needful work for the establishment. They use annually about 300,000 feet of lumber, and 3,000 tons of anthracite coal. The Dutch first manufactured white lead for paint, and their processes, by which durability and opaqueness were obtained, have stood the test of centuries. Only in manipulation have there been improvements. By the use of compact machinery, more perfect results have been obtained, and by the drying by steam, the dust, which was so detrimental to the health of workmen, is avoided. The Boston Lead Company adhere to the old Dutch process, and produce the most perfect, results in their white and red leads. ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Martin2001 Satisfaction Guaranteed Policy !
