Paper warehouses rose on Chichester Street and Gloucester Street, receiving stock from the mill on Joy Street before they were sent to the port. Papermakers paid close attention to their craft, rotating each leaf to create fine-grained surfaces for a wide variety of uses — from newsprint to artwork. The embodiment of this craft and skill was known as 'the paper exchange'.
