An extensive history is provided on Robert Baptista’s colorantshistory.org
Here are some excerpts from his letter to me:
Thanks for allowing the use of your photos at my website. I have posted the Kohnstamm plant photo and the Reckitt’s Blue photo, with links to you, at my web page. I will add the new shots as soon as they become available at your web site.
The history of other Brooklyn dye companies is available at my web page. Some of the buildings, such as Beckers Aniline on Ditmas Ave., are still in use today. Have you photographed any of these locations?
The NYC TV show “Secrets of New York” is preparing a documentary based on my web site on the Brooklyn Dye Industry. It will include scenes filmed at the Kohnstamm plant. I think the program will air sometime in 2008. When I find out I will let you know. I’m really glad to find someone who shares my interest in industrial archaeology.
