Caption: Rayon production. Factory worker handling a machine being used to produce Super Cordura rayon. This high-tenacity rayon yarn was used for the cords of tyres. The threads run from a battery of creels into a beaming machine. This production is taking place at a DuPont factory in Richmond, Virginia, USA. The DuPont company licensed the rayon manufacturing process and produced this textile from 1920 to the 1960s. Cordura rayon was first produced in 1929, with Super Cordura appearing in 1950 and phased out in 1962. Photographed in around the 1950s.
