North Carolina Waterfalls: A Hiking and Photography Guide

North Carolina Waterfalls: A Hiking and Photography Guide

Since its original publication in 1994, North Carolina Waterfalls has been the most comprehensive guide available to one of the prime natural features of the Tar Heel State. This new edition includes over 600 waterfalls, with detailed directions and trail and beauty ratings for the major waterfalls on public land. For the first time, waterfalls located on private land will be listed, although directions won't be provided.
Visitors to western North Carolina are often surprised at the spectacular variety of waterfalls tucked among the Appalachians all the way from Murphy in the southwest to Stone Mountain in the northeast, and surprisingly, even in eastern locations such as Fayetteville and Rocky Mount. This guide features over 100 color and black-and-white photographs showing those waterfalls at their absolute best. Its special section about photographing waterfalls in general, as well as specific hints for photographing each individual waterfall, will help readers create memorable images of their own.

Meier and Pohlmann Furniture Factory

Meier and Pohlmann Furniture Factory

Southwest corner, Fourteenth and Palm Streets
St. Louis, MO

From 1891 until 1959, this factory building was occupied by the Meier and Pohlman Company, which manufactured fine wooden furniture. The company's original factory was located close to the Mississippi River, on Second Street. By 1874, when John Meier and John Pohlmann founded their company, this district was already crowded with lumber yards, saw mills, and other woodworking establishments. Here they enjoyed easy access to the rafts of white pine logs that were floated down the river from Wisconsin and Minnesota. The depletion of the northern forests, however, forced St. Louis manufacturers to turn to other sources of wood by the beginning of the twentieth century. Meier and Pohlmann, for instance, increasingly relied on rail shipments of oak from Missouri and the Carolinas. The firm's relocation to Fourteenth Street in 1891 reflected the general westward movement of people and industry in the neighborhood while its tremendous success mirrored the growth of the furniture industry in St. Louis at that time. By 1906, the city ranked first in the country in terms of the volume of furniture produced and its market extended across much of the American West.

Initially, Meier and Pohlmann recruited skilled cabinetmakers from Germany to work in their factory. The sons and grandsons of these original workers comprised a large part of the labor force well into the twentieth century. Contracts with Sears, Roebuck and Montgomery Ward gave the company a national market for its fine dining room furniture after 1938. During World War II, however, the company lost many of its best workers to area defense plants that offered higher wages. A dramatic increase in shipping rates ultimately led to the company's closure in 1959.

Vintage Modern Chairs - Tag 1

Vintage Modern Chairs - Tag 1

This is the chair tag - only one of them had it still stapled on the back, and it's just barely hanging on. For those that know about these things - what do you do with the labels if they are about to come off? Do you restaple it, remove it and store separately, or?

Full text reads:

"Piece No. 571 Especially Made For Pacific Desk Co. of Los Angeles, Calif. by Gregson Mfg. Co. Liberty, N.C."

"Cover No.: DC-22"
"Color: Smokescreen"
"Customer's Number: 919"
"Finish: Oil. Wal"
"Instructions: He?ms" (I can't read what it says)

Edit: I found out Gregson Manufacturing Company was founded in 1921 in Liberty, N.C. I don't know if they changed their name or what, but it also appears as Gregson Furniture Industries. Later, they were apparently acquired by various companies in the 80s and 90s. One document called the later Gregson "a manufacturer of traditional and transitional styled seating for the office and institutional markets."
