Allied Paper in 1980
1980 was not the
"glory days" of Allied Paper but Bryant Mill was still a busy place.
The photos below were all taken there so I could show my parents in
England where I was working.
Looking from Alcott St. to the North, the
power plant is in the left rear.
Conrail switching the mill, pushed boxcars along
to Mill D,
power plant on the right.
This building houses the research labs. We were
come out with better, cheaper coatings.
Looking eastwards along Alcott St with Mill C on
Seems like there was a Dunkin Donuts
at the end of Alcott St in this time period, where the drive-thru grocery store is today.
Portage Creek flowing through the middle of Mill
Note - the above photo was featured in the May 2010
magazine article "Tainted Waters"
Mill D from the research building. Note the oddity
pine tree growing in the middle of a paper mill......
The power plant with an SCM (Owners of
Paper) truck heading for Mill D
The railroad entry point, left for Mill E, straight ahead
for Mill D and Mill C (North dock), right for Mill C (South).
Mills A and B were just south of Alcott St. to the east of the
railroad. They were demolished prior to 1980.
Switching in progress - incoming paper pulp from
and clay slurry heading for Mill D.
I went back to the negatives and found more photos
paper in 1980. The color is a little off but
they are worth
adding to the page. For a larger view

house, click here.

This view must have been taken after the big water tank
down. It would have been just to the left of the tree|
gantry that crosses Alcott Street. For a larger

Note - Prior to the Allied Paper
purchase of the Bryant Paper Company in 1956, Mills A and B were known as
the Superior Division, Mill C was the Bryant Division, Mill D was the Milham
Division and Mill E was the Imperial Division.
