Caption: Nylon production. Factory worker inspecting the yarn beaming process at DuPont's nylon manufacturing plant at Seaford, Delaware, USA. In this operation the yarn is transferred from individual areas to a big beam to enable the fabric maker to handle the yarn more efficiently. Nylon was a new material discovered by the DuPont Company in 1935. Full-scale production started in 1939, and nylon was used in a variety of products such as toothbrushes and stockings. Photographed in around the 1940s.
