View of Sandwich, De Kalb County, I.L., 1869 / drawn & published by A. Ruger.

This bird’s-eye view print of Sandwich, Illinois was drawn by Albert Ruger and published by Chicago Lith. Co. in 1869. Sandwich was established as a flag-stop along the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy Railroad in the 1850's. This new transportation service instilled much growth to the agricultural community of Sandwich.

Early manufacturers that re-located to Sandwich during this era include Augustus Adams’s foundry and machine shop. The foundry produced portable corn-shellers under the name A. Adams & Co. In 1869 the Sandwich Enterprise Company was a new addition to the community with large operations on Main Street and warehouses on Eddy Street. The company manufactured windmills, force pumps, cultivators and feed-grinders.
