Title

Perry Knitting Company With Street Bridges, 1971

Description

The Rice Collection annotation tells us that "For a time, the Champion plant utilized the defunct Perry Knitting Company. This print is of the Perry Knitting Company before all the buildings were destroyed and show the street bridges."

This photograph was taken at the junction of Hope and Water Streets, looking west at Mill #5. The large walkway at left connects to Mill #1--the original PKC factory--and the one at right connects to the company's central office. Compare the view here to a similar vantage point during the late 1940s.
