Waterbury, Conn. 1899.

Reproduction birds-eye view map of the community known as Waterbury, CT, created and published by Landis and Hughes in 1899. 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 1800's. 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 Waterbury Company's button division began furnishing buttons to all branches of the U. S. Military during the Civil War and continues today.
