Women at Work -- Matthews Engineering

Several employees of the Matthews Engineering Company, at King and Monroe Streets, are seen here in 1923. Manual typewriters are on the desks, and heat was provided by radiators along the wall. The Matthews Engineering Company manufactured lighting and power plants from about 1916 through 1926.

According to the June 1920 Sandusky High School Fram, a searchlight made by the Matthews Engineering Company provided protection for the palace grounds of the King of Siam.
