The Norwood Press is an assured success and has proven itself a valuable addition to the industries of the town not withstanding the croaking of several individuals who would not be satisfied if they had pie three times a day.
The businessmen of Norwood showed unerring foresight and wisdom when they induced the Press Works to locate here, and the result of six months’ business has more than justified them, and far exceeded their most sanguine expectations.
The present pay-roll of the companies which form the Norwood Press, amounts to $2950 a week, which means an annual expenditure of $153,400 per year in hard cash to the employees, most of whom reside right in town and spend their money amongst the townspeople. This is money brought in from other cities, and the greater part of it goes to benefit the merchants and tradesmen of Norwood. It represents an annual outlay of over $100,000 in and about this vicinity and must be of benefit to every man, woman, and child concerned.
Apart from the financial benefit, the moral and social elements that constitute the personnel of the employees engaged must be of great value, for they represent the best class of skilled labor in the country, while the gentlemen concerned in the management are men of ability and high standing in the community.
The Norwood Press is a blessing to the town, and as the years go by its worth and work will be more fully recognized, and the name of Norwood be known wherever the printed pages of the publications bearing the company’s imprint are read.
