Pittsfield MA 1911

This is the General Electric plant, in Pittsfield MA, as it appeared in 1911. This DeepZoom view was produced from the original 8 x 10 glass negative. Six separate scans (at 4800 dpi, 16 bit greyscale) were required to gather the entire image into the computer. The image was then stitched together and then tone mapped to provide the maximum amount of realistic detail. This web view was created using an image pyramid, which contains over 39,000 image tiles, and are organized at varying degrees of magnification and detail. Click anywhere within the view to rapidly zoom into any closeup. The navigation controls, in the upper left side of the image, allow you to view or close a full screen view. Please explore and enjoy!
