A good friend hired on one of the local plants around 1950. He said they were using cloth sacks at the time and remembered vividly how the sacks were cleaned and repaired. He said they switched to paper in the early 50s. I wrote something up on this, maybe with closer dates in an article in the Nov 08 RMC.

I've attached a excel sheet with some sack loads from waybills. I haven't seen the waybills, just given the info.
