Bristol, Conn. looking north-east. Drawn & published by Geo. E. Norris. Burleigh Lith. Est.

Reproduction historic map of Bristol, CT, looking northeast. The town of Bristol was known as a "clock-making" town throughout the 1800's, and is now home to the American Clock and Watch Museum. The attention to clock-making is evident in this map, which references more than a dozen companies directly related to clock-making.

This map presents a view of the city in the same year that Albert F. Rockwell and his brother moved to Bristol. It was the Bristol's reputation as a clock-making town that attracted them, and they soon leased a building east of North Main Street and the "New Departure Bell Company" began production of their newly patented coaster brakes. and bicycle lamps. The Rockwell's changed the name to the "New Departure Manufacturing Company", responding to the growing demand by the new automobile industry for ball bearings. This was the beginning of a company that was to later become a part of the General Motors Corporation. Albert Rockwell and his wife, Nettie, resided at Brightwood Hall, which is also referenced on the map. Complete reference list below.
