Peabody, MA

Apparantly Peabody, MA produced more tanned hides than anywhere else in the world from 1900-1950. Then because of the economy all the tanneries in Peabody started to shut down, and then after boston decided they didn’t want boston harbor to continue to be a festering cesspool, the tanneries all shut down because they couldn’t keep up with the environmental requirements.
