In its heyday, "The Brush Shop," as locals called it, grew in tandem with growing national concern for oral hygiene to become one of the city's largest employers. Many families had several members working there, and often more than one generation. Through interviews with former Pro Brush people, archival photographs from the collection of Historic Northampton, and commercials and advertisements from different periods, this film tells the story of a vital Northampton industrial history.
