Workers at Ross & Hardy Paper Works 1901

2 mins United Kingdom

By 1901 wood pulp had begun to replace more costly cotton fibre in paper-making, leading to a burgeoning market in cheaply-produced newspapers and other print materials. We don't know where this long-gone works was, but its handsome stuccoed frontage and healthy appearance of its employees - some of them proudly holding beautifully-clothed infants up for the cameras - suggest a thriving business.
