must not have been an election year???

Only those of us who remember these days will remember coloured, and printed, toilet paper.. Now it HAS to be bleached white!! Bleah. Save the bleach.

I forgot about ZEE, I think it was Crown Zellerbach product.

Crown Zellerbach was one of several large wood products companies in Oregon and the Pacific Northwest. Remember the days when the wind blew just right (or wrong, take your pick) and the smell came in from the paper mills at Camas. Portland smelled like one gigantic fart.

I remember the colored tissue. Grandma had pink tp and tissues for her pink bathroom and blue for her blue bathroom...

crown z as we in the newspaper industry called it, made all sorts of paper products all the way up to newprint rolls, always seemed odd to me why it seemed to be the only papermaking plant with that odd smell,the ones in longview vancouver and oregon city never smelled like that???

john, you obviously never drove past the International Paper Western Kraft mill on I-5. It took all the way to Eugene to get the smell out of the car.

My dad worked for Crown Zellerbach for many years. He called the smell from the Camas Mill 'the smell of money.'
