View of Littleton, Grafton County, N.H., 1883 / drawn & published by A. F. Poole.

This bird’s-eye view print of Littleton, New Hampshire was drawn and published by A. F. Poole, Beck & Pauli Lith. in 1883. Littleton was settled in the 1760's near the Connecticut River, on the northwest edge of the White Mountains. Littleton was a timber town in its early years. A stone grist mill, built in the 1850's along Rankin’s Brook, was used by local farmers as well as farmers from Vermont.

The Ammonoosuc River, flowing through town on its way to the Connecticut, was used to supply power to mills and manufactories at Littleton. A number of glove factories began operations in the late 1800's. Ira Parker & Company altered an earlier woolen mill to begin the Littleton Saranac Buck Glove Factory. The popular glove manufacturer employed 200 people, producing 20,000 to 40,000 dozen pairs of gloves annually. White Mountain Glove Works manufactured all kinds of glove and mittens of oil-tanned Saranac stock. The Granite State Glove Company was established in 1881. The Eureka Glove Company relocated their glove works to Tilton’s Opera House block in 1882.
