Close-up view of DuPont employee Richard L. Huber adjusting the steam chimney on a five-position windup and spinning machine at the DuPont pilot plant in Wilmington, Delaware during the early stages of nylon production and research. The steam chimney was used to expose the newly-spun nylon yarn to moisture, which stabilized the fiber and allowed it be wound onto a bobbin.
