    An interesting history of this building, architecture and location can be found on the Inventory-Nomination Form for the National Register of Historic Places. Apparently this building was torn down in 1983 (?)

    Thanks for posting this. Both my father and my grandfather worked at Standard Paper Company. And I can remember as a child, my father, then maintenance supervisor, would take me to the plant and I would walk through the machinery, the sheets of paper whizzing over my head. There were three plants, one on the south side and two across on the north side of Hull Street.

    I grew up in southside and would pass this factory many times. We moved to FL in 1969, but I returned to Richmond mid-1976 and worked a short time has a security guard. I worked this Standard a few times after the plant had shut down. It was an interesting place to walk around while visiting the guard check in stations.
