The Leather Anniversary

To mark the third anniversary — the Leather Anniversary — of the Streamline blog, I suggest a virtual visit to the Walsall Leather Museum.

Walsall, a town in Staffordshire eleven miles northwest of Birmingham, has been the center of leather manufacture in England for over 200 years. A fascinating timeline compiled by the Leather Museum is here (pdf).
