Synopsis

Erinoid. n. name given to a plastics material manufactured from milk: (arch.) artificial horn: also the name of a Company in Stroud, Gloucestershire where it was produced throughout much of the 20th century! This publication tells the story of the development of the Company into a major British manufacturer of plastics materials. It is extensively illustrated with historic photographs of the site, the manufacturing processes, the workforce and even the company's splendid sporting facilities. Erinoid was used to make fountain pens, buttons, knitting needles and combs. It would have been handled daily by almost everyone in Great Britain but is now almost completely forgotten.
