Mill Workers

Kent's early economy thrived on its many mills which were powered by the mighty Cuyahoga. Popular mills of the area included flour mills, grist mills and woolen mills. The workers in this photo pose after a hard day's work. Mill work was challenging, and it shows in the worn clothing and tired faces of these men.

What does the sign say? Can you figure out what type of mill this was by reading it?
