Lonaconing Silk Mill: Portrait of Place
by Arthur Ransome
About the Book
Lonaconing silk mill in Western Maryland is the last remaining mill of its kind in the USA. The photographs in this book illustrate the mill as it was left on the day it closed in the 1950s and includes not only the machinery but also the personal possessions left behind by the workers when the mill doors were sealed closed. This book opens the lid on the time capsule that is the Lonaconing Silk Mill.
