Excerpt from King's How to See Boston: A Trustworthy Guide BookThe Visitor who neglects the great retail and wholesale establishments, the extensive industries, the financial and other institutions, because they are places of business, misses the most edifying and interesting sights of a metropolis. In these may be seen so much of what makes up the world of to-day that they present an equal claim for observation with public institutions, parks, statues, landmarks, and other historical and descriptive matters.To make clear this point, no visitor should fail to see Macullar. Parker & Company's establishment, where more than six hundred people are employed in workshops which are models for all the world; the enormous plant of the Waltham Watch Company, which contains an infinite variety of the most ingenious machinery, producing the most infinitcsimally perfect particles of mechanism ; the great storehouse of Jones, McDufee & Stratton, which is a veritable museum of the fine arts of many countries ; the huge manufactory of Chickering & Sons, the oldest and most famous of American piano-makers, whose instruments are found in palaces and homes throughout the wide world; the immense slaughtering and packinghouses of John P. Squire & Company, where in a single day six thousand hogs, cattle, and other animals can be humanely purified, divided, and put forth in many appetizing forms for human sustenance; and other noteworthy concerns.With this in mind, many establishments have been mentioned and illustrated, but care has been taken to mention none that cannot be visited, or that are not well worth visiting.Many of these extend a cordial welcome and have attendants to show visitors their establishments, as far as is reasonably practicable.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
