1893 Original Print Of Meriden Britannia, Meriden, Ct

1893 Original Print of Meriden Britannia,

Meriden, CT

#43

This print was produced in 1893 for the D.H. Hurd “Town and City Atlas for the State of Connecticut”. The atlas for which these were made contains 44 different prints, almost all of which are manufacturing related. I will be listing all of the 44 prints today. They measure approx 15” by 19 ½” and are in excellent, very frameable condition. To peruse the entire set of 44 historic prints, visit our store: saskiatwo. The art for this print was done by Caughey.

Note: apologies for any flares or discolorations, in reality the prints are bright and clear without distortions

As with all the Hurd prints the level of detail is fascinating and they were sure to include billowing smoke stacks as well as locomotives in many of their scenes. In this print it actually shows the New York – New Haven & Hartford Rail Road Depot in Meriden.

Excerpt from the History of Wallingford Connecticut … by Charles Henry Stanley Davis, 1870

“The Meriden Britannia Company was established in 1852, the factory at that time being near the site of the substantial buildings which compose the present extensive series of factories. The warehouse in New York has been at 199 Broadway since 1860. The factory embraces several buildings, the chief one being the most imposing structure in the city. Its dimensions are 527 feet by 40. The whole number of buildings is about half-a-dozen. They are principally of brick, built especially for the varied purposes of the business, and are nearly all four stories in height, and occupy four acres of ground in the heart of the city. In the busiest seasons there are employed in all the various departments about nine hundred experienced operatives of both sexes. The value of the merchandise usually on hand at one time at the factory and warehouse is about $1,000,000; and this estimate is independent of the immense amount of costly machinery, tools, etc., employed in the manufactory. The annual sales of the company and the various companies they own a controlling interest in, average $2,500,000; and the goods are now sent to the trade not only throughout the United States, but largely to the British Provinces, West Indies, South America …”
