Conflagration - Wilkinson Counter Company, Jefferson Avenue, 4:15 p.m.
The Wilkinson Counter Company was one of the more modern factory buildings in Salem. The building was sprinklered, mill constructed, and had slate-shingled walls and a water tank on the roof. Assisted by Engine 6 of the Boston Fire Department, the building was saved because of the firemen's efforts and the continually running sprinklers. Included in the album compiled by William F. Abbott, this image was taken on Jefferson Avenue at 4:15 p.m.
