Tannery growing again

Luray-Main St old

June 13, 1889 — The Tannery is to be still further enlarged by the erection of an additional leach house; two more large boilers are to be put in, and another smoke stack, same size of the one already there, is to be erected. The work will begin in about a month. This is rendered necessary to supply the annex built last summer with bark and liquor.
