HASKELL PLANT

Hagley Museum and Library Collection





What follow are over 100 photographs from the Hagley Collection of various views at the Haskell Plant. Most of the photos, from the early 1900's, were taken by DuPont's engineering department as a record of works in progress or completed. They show the development not only of the Haskell Plant, but of what is now known as the Haskell section of Wanaque.

The photographs are displayed with 12 to 13 per page.
