Description
Photo taken during closing of the Sunset Line & Twine Company in Petaluma, Calif. in Dec. 2006. Sunset manufactured braided cords and lines for the hardware, marine and other markets out of the same building since 1940, when Art Agnew relocated the company to its Petaluma location. The company also supplied the parachute line that eased the Gemini and Apollo missions back to earth. After the business fell on hard times, the business was sold to Kraft Tools and the Petaluma operations ultimately closed. Some of the machinery was shipped to Kraft's plant in Shawnee, Kans. in Dec. 2006. The remaining machinery was auctioned off in Aug. 2007 and the building was slated for conversion to condominiums.
