Remarkable little insight to this once massive thriving business. There was a medical office, a library, cafeterias, a school for children workers, etc.
Book is physically old and shows some signs of handling and time. Book is not new or in "new" condition.
Binding gently age worn, mostly light signs of handling and time but nothing offensive or severe, book remains overall attractive as an object. Someone wrote Boston Mass. on the top of the front cover long ago.
Paper is gently toned, internally still clean, tight, sound internally.
Still attractive on the shelf. The book displays a pleasing and unique age patina and is in overall nice antiquarian condition, any age flaws which may be present seem easy to overlook or forgive.
