Steel Engraving from 1876! --- another quality print from Martin2001 --- Pawtucket - Rhode Island Goff and Sons Braid Manufacturing Company Artist: n/a; Engraver: n/a 100 years old art print ... in excellent condition ... reverse side is blank ! Size: Overall size of the print including blank margins: 7 1/2 x 10 1/2 (1 inch = 2,54cm) Condition: Very good condition. Printed on heavier wove paper. Circular damp-stain in lower left corner of print, slightly darker in reality than in the photo. From the original description: The manufacture of worsted braids is a new industry in our country, which was begun about fifteen years ago. Previous to that time, worsted braids, used in the United States, were all imported, at an, annual cost, of between two and three million dollars. The business of manufacturing worsted braids was begun in 1861, by D. Goff and Son, in Pawtucket, Rhode Island. One, or two other, parties began the manufacture at about the same time. For various reasons, such as inexperience in the business, want of proper machinery, and heavy importations of goods under a low tariff, they all lost money in the experiment. Messrs. Goff and Son persevered under the weight of heavy losses and discouragements, until the tariff of 1867 gave them fresh courage. They were then making better goods than any that were imported or manufactured in our country, and their business began to be remunerative. Now they are on the full tide of success, and they maintain the reputation of making better goods than were ever imported, while they supply consumers at twenty per cent. less than they formerly paid for the imported articles. The establishment of D. Goff and Son Consists of a Mill 200 feet in length, 54 feet in width, and five stories in height, which is lighted by gas, heated by steam, thoroughly ventilated, and furnished with the best of machinery. A turbine water-wheel of 275 horse-power, drives the machinery and theirs is the last water privilege on the Blackstone river which empties into Narragansett bay a few miles below. Tide-water flows up to their mill. About 150 persons are employed in this worsted braid manufactory, whose average production is about 100,000 yards a day, of alpaca skirt braid. ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Martin2001 Satisfaction Guaranteed Policy !

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.
