Fitz Water Wheel Company photographs

Accession: 1995-218

The Fitz Water Wheel Company specialized in the manufacture of water wheels and small power plants, although it also manufactured grain dryers and blowers. John Fitz (1847-1914), who succeeded his father as head of the firm, developed the modern steel overshot water wheel. These photographic prints are transfers from the Fitz Water Wheel Company manuscript collection. They document different residential and commercial sites where Fitz Water wheels were installed.
