View of Brockton, Plymouth County, M.A., 1882 / drawn & published by A. F. Poole.

This bird’s-eye view print of Brockton, Massachusetts was drawn by A. F. Poole and published by Beck & Pauli, lithographers in 1882. Brockton served the many farms of the area in its early years. Indian corn, rye, barley, oats, hay and potatoes were grown abundantly, as well as apples and pears. Livestock were raised throughout the region, and much production of milk, butter and cheese was carried out in Brockton’s early years.

In the mid-1800's, several shoe and boot manufacturers emerged in Brockton, utilizing water power supplied by the Salisbury Plain River. The shoe and leather industry aided in Brockton’s development into the 1880's.

Brockton earned city status in 1881. It could be reached via the Old Colony Railway. An underground electrical wiring system was installed in Brockton in 1883 by Thomas A. Edison.
