Title

Map of New York Textile Mills, 1913

Description

This survey from the Official American Textile Directory shows some175 New York communities with some sort of textile firm, in most cases more than one (for example, the town of Perry has three). Also noted on the map are rail lines connecting the many manufacturing sites. What becomes clear is how widely distributed the production of clothing was only a century ago.
