Miltonia Mills Blankets Advertisement, 1921

By Muriel Bristol (Transcriber) | November 29, 2018

Here follows a 1921 advertisement for Miltonia Mills white wool blankets. This particular advertisement seems pitched towards the institutional blanket trade. Others highlight Milton Mills as a supplier to Admiral Peary’s polar expedition and to Admiral Robert E. Byrd’s Antarctic expedition.

Miltonia Mills operated in some form from 1856 until its bankruptcy in 1950, a period of ninety-four years. Greene Tanning took up its building in or after the 1954 bankruptcy sale.
