Donside Paper Mill. William Falconer attends the paper reels. c.1928.

The production of paper in the area goes back as far as 1696 at Gordon mills which later changed to a cloth mill, then meal mill before returning to paper production in 1890.

Donside Paper Company LTD. Took over in 1893 with many men and women from Woodside working in the Donside Paper Mill.

In 1913 a modern newsprint machine was installed (reportedly the fastest in the country) by the mid-1900s the mill modernised further and was home to the two fastest running paper machines in the North east.
