About this Item

1 double-leaf print from the 1876 Atlas of York County, Pa. Signed "Ray Del." Contains an aerial view of the ironworks with inset illustrations showing sections of the house front department and the machine shop, as well as several close-ups of machinery. Also shows a steam locomotive on the train tracks running in front of the ironworks. The ironworks was located on W. North Street in York. The company was founded in 1840 by Elisha Geiger and Samuel Bechtol; other partners during the 19th century included Alexander Small, Edward G. Smyser, and Smyser's sons. "E.G. Smyser" appears over the central door in the print, with "Variety Iron Works" above that. In 1877 it opened an office in Baltimore where much of the ornamental ironwork was sold. The company also produced iron castings for J.W. Fiske Co. in New York City beginning in 1869. The company continued to operate until 1941. As of 2013, the central building was being used by the York Academy Revinoal Charter School. In Very Good+ Condition: slight staining along edges, not impacting the image; solid and otherwise clean.
