View of employees loading dye paste onto dryer trays at the Althouse Chemical Company manufacturing plant in Reading, Pennsylvania. As part of the manufacturing process, the trays were later inserted into the steam-heated drying ovens lining the wall on the right-hand side.
Based in Reading, Pennsylvania, the Althouse Chemical Company was founded in 1915 by C.
