Back in 2002, the Souvenir Building Collector, Journal of the Souvenir Building Collectors Society, published a part travelogue, part historical, and part descriptive article by Bill Trainer on The French Worsted Company, Woonsocket, RI. A miniature replica of this company’s buildings and campus is sought after by souvenir building collectors. In just a few days one of these replicas, from the Bob Kneisel collection, will be auctioned off at the SBCS 2018 Convention in Worcester, MA.
Here is the beginning of the article.
