Social Fabric - The Men and Women of the Bleachery

This 88-piece photographic exhibit documents workers at the Rock Hill Printing and Finishing Company Bleachery. Founded in 1929, it was a major employer for seven decades in Rock Hill, providing steady, well-paying jobs for three generations of families. When it closed in 1998, it was the end of the textile industry era in the city.

Originally submitted by: John M. Spratt, Representative (5th District).
