The history of oilcloth!

No. 116. The Standard Textile Products Co.

From an Youngstown Vindicator article dated Feb. 13, 1925
I am spending the day researching the history of oilcloth for my upcoming book, Sewing with Oilcloth, (August, 2011) and I came across this drawing and article written by John Heinl. I thought you would enjoy seeing where oilcloth was manufactured in the early 20th century!

I have an oilcloth sign (made of oilcloth) for Columbus. Would you like me to take a picture of it?
