The following scans are from 19th century magazines , journals and books and represent scans of the inside and outside of manufacturing plants.  Some of the engravings represent what the inside of a machine shop in the late 18th century looked like.  Others show the outside of the plant including things like: ships, canals, horse drawn carts and trains.  Most all of the outside engravings show a smokestack with black smoke, a sign of a busy factory.
