Reproduction map of the
community known as Waterbury, CT, by T. M. Fowler, published by Hughes &
Fowler in 1917. The city of Waterbury lies along the banks of the
Naugatuck River. The land, once considered non-arable by settlers,
became prime real estate for industries of many sorts in the 1800s.
Known as "Brass City", Waterbury had several industrial interests. They
began manufacturing brass using a technology borrowed from the British,
and lured skilled craftsmen from overseas to use their talents in town.
The Waterbury Clock Company buildings were constructed in 1857. By 1900,
the company employed 3,000 workers and was producing 20,000 clocks and
watches per day. They would later produce the "Mickey Mouse" watch, and
today, after trading hands and with name changes, the Waterbury Clock
Co. is known as Timex Group USA. The Apothecary Building, built in 1893
at the corner of South Main and Bank Streets, would soon become the hub
of Exchange Place. The elite Hotel Elton opened in 1905 introducing its
"Ideal Tour" to cater to the new automobile tourists. The Union Station
Clocktower was built in 1909 and modeled after the Torre del Mangia
located in the Palazzo Publico of Siena, Italy. The clocktower stands at
240 feet with a clock made by Seth Thomas Co. In 1915, the new City Hall
building was erected on Grand Avenue. Waterbury was all abuzz in 1917 as
locals Mr. & Mrs. Irving Chase's daughter wed President Taft's son
