Lot Essay

The Factories seen shortly before the fire of 1822. The view shows the New English Factory to the left of Hog Lane, with its new pedimented Palladian frontage, this façade built after the fire at the factory in February 1815. There is no bell tower (late 1821) standing in front of the Danish factory to the left of the American factory. The latter would be rebuilt with a Western style façade shortly before the fire in 1822.
