Abstract: The Winton Motor Carriage Company was founded in 1897 by Cleveland, Ohio, bicycle manufacturer Alexander Winton. A factory at the corner of Belden and Mason streets was established. A new factory complex at 10601 Berea Road and a sales office and garage at 1228 Huron Road was built in 1902. New models included delivery vehicles and a racing car. The company was reorganized in 1915 as the Winton Motor Car Company, and produced 2,450 vehicles the following year. Winton produced expensive models of cars, and could not compete with increasingly mass-produced competitors such as Ford. In 1924, the company ceased production of automobiles. The collection consists of a stereographic viewer containing stereographic photographs on a roll of the Winton Motor Carriage Company factory, Cleveland, Ohio. Also includes 81 black and white slide transparencies which are duplicates of the stereographic roll photographs. And two 8 x 10 inch black and white copy photographs: of slide no. 29 (assembly building) and slide no. 54 (parts and repairs building). Factory views include automobile assembly, workers, buildings, departments, machinery, and other locations within the complex.
