General view of two unidentified employees at work in the Dow Chemical Company's saran film manufacturing facilities in Midland, Michigan. The employees are seen stretching a length of film between two rollers. During production, saran film was trimmed and wound into so-called inventory rolls, such as those visible behind the employee on the left. Initially developed for the U.S. Army to wrap arms and equipment for transport during World War II, saran plastic was subsequently developed and marketed as Saran Wrap for household use.
