国厂精品114福利电影THOSE GREENS amongst you will Shudder at the following story concerning the Singer company and its wood-working and cabinet department.

国厂精品114福利电影As early as 1868 Singer set up a special cabinet factory in South Bend, Indiana, an area chosen for its location on the St Joseph River in a region abundant in forests full of walnut, oak and maple.

Singer, in fact, owned vast forest tracts in Arkansas which kept the 76-acre South Bend factory going for years, although there are no reports of any reforestation programmes.
