Description

"Paper Mills, Espanola: Canada is now one of the largest pulp and paper producing countries in the world, having actually overtaken the United States. The industry is distributed widely over the Dominion and has become one of the most important industries of Canada. In 1925, the total production of wood pulp was 2,2772,507 tons, of which about 70% was converted into paper in Canada and the remainder exported, mostly to the United States. This view is of a large mill in the Algoma country, between Sudbury and Sault Ste. Marie."
