Original Photograph of the Waltham Watch Factory on the Charles River, c.1890

This early photograph features the Waltham factory on the banks of the Charles River in Waltham, Massachusetts.

When this scene was captured around 1890, approximately 5,000,000 watches had been assembled within the walls of this factory.

The perspective of this scene from across the river provides a glimpse of the original factory buildings that are often hidden from view in photographs of the factory front.
