Trees to Tribunes

Many thanks to the Internet Archive for providing this vintage footage.

THIS film about the Chicago Tribune was made in 1937.

It starts off with logging in Canada, then on to the paper-making process.

We then get a tour of the newsroom and a brief look at plate-making.

My favourite part was the un-manned underground railway that takes the paper from the docks to the Tribune's print plant.
