Here is a link is an interesting full page article I have read, printed in the Brooklyn Daily Eagle, 01 Apr. 1900. The title of this article is “The Bicycle Trust and Its Employees. Thus being the concerns of Hartford Connecticut, the American Bicycle Company, and Col. A.A. Pope.

It is very well written in that of describing the factory, the processes, and the sights and sounds of it. It describes the workers, wages, conditions and even touches on their living conditions outside the factory, their homes etc.

You’ll have to set aside some reading time, as I said it’s a full page, but I think I came away from it with a better image and understanding of how felt inside that huge factory.
