Machine room workers, Forest Paper Co., Yarmouth, ca. 1900

Contributed by Yarmouth Historical Society

The soda pulp that Forest Paper Co. in Yarmouth produced was shipped to countries like Mexico, England, and Japan.

The machine room that these men worked in was designed to produce large pressed and dried rolls of soda fiber. When the mill closed in 1923 some of this equipment was moved to other mill locations, but a lot of it was scrapped.
