Lecture: The Iron Hand in the Silk Glove

Gianfranco Archimede, Executive Director of the Paterson Historic Preservation Commission and The Iron Hand in the Silk Glove photographer, will be presenting on "The Rise & Demise of Industry in Paterson" and the history of the Allied Textile Printing Site.

Allied Textile Printing Site: The ATP site rests derelict since its final closure in 1986 after over 190 years of continuous operation. The astonishing variety of Paterson's industries of cotton and silk weaving, iron foundries, military firearms, textile dyeing and finishing all began here in 1792. Through large format, hand-printed, silver photographs, this exhibition tells the story of these "factories below the falls" - in context of the ATP landscape of 2006.
