In the early 1900’s, the maintenance of recreation parks and playgrounds, the Young Men’s Christian Associations, assistance to the schools and churches were always included as a part of the operating budgets of these plants, and the care of health safeguarded by the presence of well-trained nurses was one of the first thoughts towards the welfare and happiness of employees. The products of these plants include twines, cords, ropes, drills, sheetings, sateens, moleskin, corduroy, filter fabrics, and every sort of canvas and duck, a variety of rugs, and many other specialties.
