This estate was the family home of an engineer, he was the Plant Engineer at The Shoe, what locals call The United Shoe Machinery Company in Beverly, MA. The factory is recognized as one of the nation's most important landmarks of industrial design.
After the plant closed relics from it's nearly 100 years of operation were retained by the engineer including the International Time Recording Co Time Clock, shoe salesman sample cases, stock certificate and ephemera featuring plant construction photographs, employee handbook and MORE.
The engineer's father was a homeopathic doctor who was renowned for treating a pope for his hiccups. His collection of apothecary medicines remain plus his period antiques featuring clocks, export porcelain and china are featured prominently within the home.
