Re: Hides


The Peter Cooper plant in Gowanda NY received hides in gondola cars.  The hides floated in slime.  In summer there was a noticeable fragrance that permeated the entire area.  Careless switching frequently resulted in hides being sloshed out of the cars.  I had the extreme pleasure of working on a road crew just downwind of the plant back in the summer of 1962.  Needless to say we went for a ride before we ate lunch.
