This image captures the account of the Campbell’s Carriage Factory published in a local newspaper in June, 1870.

This is the earliest newspaper story to appear about Campbell’s Carriage Factory, re-created from a period when we have almost no other records. We learn a lot in this rather short account, but it provides only the tip of an iceberg! Almost every item of information raises more questions than this abbreviated account can answer.
