The Moses King Corporation was a publishing company that created a comprehensive series of books in the late 1800s. In addition to this hefty reference work, it made guide books for most of the major cities of the United States (for example, "King's Handbook of Boston Harbor"). These books were published from 1890 to 1900, but few exist after that date. This section describes some of the major industries of Massachusetts. It is arranged by industry, rather than town and the industries chosen appear to have been the largest in the town. The guide provides an overview of the most prominent industries in Massachusetts in 1891.
