From a time shortly after the revolutionary war, paper was manufactured in the nation's capital until 1950. In this book the history and associated drama of that industry come to life with the background of events that shaped our magnificent capital. Over 70 photographs and prints, many rare and unpublished, bring excitement to the story told in this book. For the student of paper technology who becomes lost in the maze of arcane nomenclature, chemistry, and plumbing here is a framework with which to make the interesting complexities of paper manufacturing more understandable.
