A handsome and quite detailed plan for the proposed enlargement of the C.B. Cottrell Company. This plan appeared in Everts & Richards "Atlas of Rhode Island."

The C. B. Cottrell & Sons Company was founded in Westerly, Rhode Island, in 1855 by Nathan Babcock and Calvert B. Cottrell. The company, originally known as Cottrell & Babcock, opened as a general machine manufacturer, but soon focused on the manufacture of oscillating printing presses. In 1868 the company began manufacturing printing presses exclusively. The company became known as the C. B. Cottrell & Sons Company following the retirement of Nathan Babcock and subsequent introduction to the business of Cottrell's four sons, C. B. Cottrell & Sons Company continued to produce printing presses throughout the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, eventually becoming a subsidiary of the Harris-Seybold Company.
