Extended info for: "The workings of a paper mill"
Octagonal papermill "The Schoolmaster" in Westzaan. Rotating system of wooden cogs which drive three vertical cleavers in a bucket containing rags. The thus obtained pulp of paper flows over a copper sieve, which let the water flow through. Wet sheets of paper that remain on the surface are taken of the role taken and dehumified by a wooden press operated by two men. Sheets are hung to dry on ropes in a large drafty barn. Uptilt to partly cloudy sky. Octagonal mill type smock with shelf.
