1903--F. Carder in Front of the Steuben Glass Works
We always love seeing these pictures from the height of cut glass production in the Crystal City! In 1903, Thomas Hawkes, the founder of local cut glass firm T. G Hawkes & Co., recruited English glassmaker Frederick Carder to establish Steuben Glass Works in Corning, NY. This photo shows Thomas son, Samuel, and Frederick Carder in front of Steuben Glass Works the year it was founded. The Rakow Library digitized this photo from a negative lent to us by Jane Levatino, who was Samuel Hawkes granddaughter.
Thanks to Scott Hansen for sending this along.
