This scene is in the new Nylon Reclamation Unit in the DuPont nylon plant at Seaford, Delaware, USA. Nylon was a new material discovered by the DuPont Company in 1935. Full-scale production started in 1939, and nylon was used in a variety of products such as toothbrushes and stockings. Photographed in around the 1950s
