Pulp and Paper Production in 1912

Pulp pile at Botwood in Newfoundland
The Art Gallery of Ontario is exhibiting four albums by photographer J.C.M. Hayward, as produced for the Anglo-Newfoundland Development Company in 1912. 
The pulp and paper company, based in Grand Falls, transformed Newfoundland’s economy. In the 48 views found in this album, Hayward photographed all aspects of the production of paper, from sorting cut logs to pressing pulp to packing and transporting the finished paper rolls. His evocative gelatin silver prints, luxuriously presented between leather-bound, gilt-stamped covers, beautifully celebrate the company’s success.
