Occasionally, we have citizens who bring us old artifacts from Bridgewater’s past. Quite often, they are photographs, much like the one you see above that we received last week. We don’t really know much about the subject of the photo, other than it features a wagon with “Bridgewater Mfg. Co.” painted on the side. Based on state corporation and land records, we believe the company was founded in the 1870s. When we receive items like this, we’ll scan a copy to our server and save the original photo in our archive of historical photos.
If there’s anything you’d like to share about this photo, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. If we receive any interesting information, we’ll share it with you in a future Buzz post.
