Caption: DuPont Seaford factory site, aerial photograph. Located at Seaford, Delaware, USA, and established in 1939, this was the first nylon yarn factory of the DuPont Company. This new material, recently discovered, was hugely successful. The site operated 24 hours a day, producing enough nylon for millions of stockings. Production during World War II was switched to military applications for nylon. This view looks south toward the Nanticoke River (upper left). The main building is some 320 metres long. Photographed in around the 1940s.
