Excerpt from Lynn: Its Representative Business Men and Points of Interest

Everybody knows Lynn and everybody knows that Lynn is the "Shoe City" and is a very busy, wideawake and prosperous community, but everybody does not know that its population is greater than that of any other city east of Boston, that its growth is so steady and rapid that the population and valuation are increasing at a rate so exceptional as to be almost phenomenal, and that Lynn is as beautiful and desirable as a place of residence as it is prominent and successful as an industrial centre. Yet such is the case, and the city of Lynn must seem a veritable wonder to those whose experience has been such as to make them believe that a prosperous manufacturing town must necessarily be grimy and smoke-laden; must practically be controlled by a few corporations and must contain many great tenement houses and a few mansions - neat and comfortable homes for the people being chiefly conspicuous by their absence.

In all the republic there is no city the story of whose origin and development is of more interest, for although Lynn is not situated upon what is commonly known as historic ground and has been remarkably free from the strifes, the important occurrences and the momentous events which are intimately associated with the history of other old Massachusetts towns, still it has well borne its part in the great struggle against adverse conditions the outcome of which has made New England in many respects the leading section of the country, and while Lynn has done her full share of the work of maintaining and promoting the interests of the nation she has received very little aid in the utilization of her own resources and may be truthfully called a self-made city that won success by courage, industry, enterprise and perseverance. Most of the important manufacturing towns in New England owe the origin and development of their industries to their being so favored by the existence of valuable water powers or other favorable natural conditions as to attract the attention of outside capitalists, but Lynn has no such natural advantages and is essentially a modern industrial centre, for her factories are not the outgrowth of by-gone conditions but rather the product of the demands of the times. Lynn is not "a city built around a waterfall," and hence she is not a city whose industries had their origin in what is now the bygone supremacy of water power.
