We Still Make Stuff Here
Seven companies in northeast Pennsylvania continued to manufacture goods in spite of the trend toward outsourcing. They made cigars, chocolates, pipeline brushes (called "pigs”), beer and soft drinks, woven fabrics, architectural components, and printed matter. All were gracious enough to let me photograph in their factories. Fortunately, I was able to withstand the lure of the chocolates, but couldn’t quite resist the cigars.
