This collection consists of an album containing 22 photographs of the J.K. Mosser Company facilities in Newberry, Williamsport, Lycoming County, Pennsylvania circa the 1890s. While the album includes a few exterior images of the large tannery complex, the bulk of the images depict the company's interior departments with employees at their work stations. The Mosser tannery was one of Williamsport's largest employers at the early part of the 20th century. The tannery complemented Williamsport's booming lumber and wood manufacturing industries.
