    Factory workers lean from windows and pose from outside of D.T. Bridges boot factory on Main Street in Hopkinton MA. ca 1876. Dozens can be seen outside; most wear work aprons, many wear hats. Note women sitting on sill of second floor right hand window, also a worker dangles a boot from third-story window on far left. The building is a five-story clapboard sided structure, directly to the left is the original Town Hall. View is of the southern side. This building was destroyed in a fire of April 1882, the building which replaced this one then burned in 1900. Bridges & Co. employed hundred of workers in the boot manufactory.
