R.C. Gleason took this photo in 1895 and identified it as the "Smethport sausage factory".
This may have been a joke; at any rate it was an extremely primitive operation!
The sausage factory was located in a back alley near the Christmas Store & Post Office areas today
west on Water to Mechanic Street
