The changing face of Watertown, Wisconsin, is captured in this extraordinary collection of photographs from years gone by coupled with their present-day counterparts. Then & Now: Watertown, Wisconsin, allows us to glimpse the progression and evolution of this Midwestern town. Small and diverse industries have always been the norm for Watertown. While the city no longer manufactures shoes or cigars, or brews beer as it did in the 1800s and early 1900s, it now produces the automatic cash register, molded fiberglass products, and boxes, among other things. Watertown has certainly kept pace with the changes over the years. However, the one constant that has remained are the citizens. Fashion and fads may come and go, but the people remain. Of course, the contrasts with the Watertown residents of today are immediately apparent, but the similarities can be discovered as well.
