The Blue Book: Textile Directory, United States & Canada, 1897 - 1898, Part 7.
This is a comprehensive directory of the textile trade and associated manufacturing industries for the years 1897 and 1897. It lists all manufacturing operations in the whole of Canada and the United States. The Textile manufacturers are indexed by country, state / province and the type of fiber they worked in, i.e., cotton, woolen, silk, or the coarser fibers like jute, linen, hemp or flax. There are also entries for associated trades such as Dyers and Finishers, Print Works and Bleachers and a section identifying 'new mills' opened since the last issue.
To round out the directory there is a section listing 1144 railroad routes followed by 17 pages of maps showing all the US railroad routes and the business districts of selected cities important to the textile trade.

The Archive CD Books Project exists to make reproductions of old books, documents and maps available on CD to genealogists and historians, and to cooperate with local libraries, museums and record offices in providing money to renovate old books in their collection, and to donate books to their collections, where they will be preserved for future generations.
