Noisome, noxious, and offensive vapors, fumes and stenches in American towns and cities, 1840-1865
published at : City and the Environment
Author uses stench-related nuisance case laws from New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Massachusetts (1840-1865) to examine the impact that industrial polluters, usually slaughterhouses or processors of animal by-products, had on people's lives and business activities. The source of the several dozen cases is West's American Digest, Century Edition (1897). The sources of industrial stenches in New York City are located via old sanitary district maps. - (SLD)
