Why are old pulp mills so colorful?
Edited on Tue May-25-04 09:15 PM by m-jean03
Does anyone know why? I mean, I have a feeling industrial barons aren't too concerned with their mills and factories being "pretty". :shrug:

Anyway, I've taken the train down the coast a few times, and have
always wondered about this. Any insight? Thanks.

8. We have an ancient (now basically defunct) G-P pulp mill in my town
I know that smell well! Pee-eww. The smell of my childhood! Not a problem anymore though, since most operations have closed down there.
