I also agree with an above poster about how amazing it would be to start this factory again and make quality products, unlike the junk we have now. I feel empathy for those who live nearby and who once worked here. A surprising amount of history remains in the Scranton Lace Company factory.
After all, they are tearing down a piece of Scranton history and a piece of the personal histories of many who stopped to watch Scranton Lace come down. The Scranton Lace Company facility is in a relatively isolated location surrounded by residential neighborhoods. Scranton continued to grow though as a commercial center for the surrounding mining region and as an industrial center. Longitudinal study goes on for a longer period.
