Across the River

Looking across the north branch of the Fox River, toward the Menasha Wooden Ware Company.  As we know, the company was started in 1849 and purchased by Elisha D. Smith in 1852.  Beginning as a pail factory, it later expanded into the production of other wood products and container products and became the largest manufacturer of its kind in the world.
