Ericsson Factory, Buffalo, N.Y. 1909Although scarcely a blip on the radar in the United States, the Swedish telephone giant Ericsson operated this impressive stateside facility in the early years of the 20th century. Production began at the Buffalo, New York factory in 1908, but as a foothold was never gained in the U.S. market the plant was sold in 1918. This panoramic view can also be viewed in big and huge versions.
