Something a little different this week, as we help the Iroquois Falls Museum identify old photographs.
This one doesn’t depict people. It’s a label from a roll of newsprint made in the Abitibi-Price paper mill.
Museum volunteer Danny McIntyre tells us the information he’s looking for.
“Someone who worked in order billing or shipping should be able, from the information on that label, tells when that roll of paper was made and where – what machine – and when it was made,” he outlines.
The paper was being shipped to the Indianapolis Star-Tribune.
“It’s from the 80s because don’t forget, Abitibi became Abitibi-Price in 1976, during a merger,” McIntyre adds.
It’s also earlier than the 90s, when coding on labels was standardized across the industry.
If you can help solve the mystery, contact the museum.
