Top item, pdcc00010, [Garsed & Brother Wingohocking Mills billhead] [graphic], [image dimensions 14 cm x 22 cm]:

Billhead for R. Garsed & Brother containing a view of the firm's textile mills built 1853 on the northwest corner of Ashland Street along Frankford Creek in Frankford. The mills include a small office building adjacent to a long single-story building with three portico entrances, a smokestack, and cupola adorned with a weather vane. The main building housed the spinning, carding, warping, and spreading rooms. Women stand in two of the portico entries, individuals walk on the grounds, and a "Wingohocking" horse-drawn wagon travels past the mill. In the foreground, by the creek, a horse and colt stand near a canoe marked "Wingohocking Mills" moored at the bank. Across from the animals, a Native American stands with his canoe moored behind him. Richard Garsed was a pioneer in the improvement of cotton mill machinery, including the increased efficiency of power looms, during the 1840s and 1850s.
