aluminum foil

Early Foil Applications


The first commercial use of aluminum foil in the U.S. apparently was for identification leg bands for racing pigeons, sometime around 1913-14. Quite understandably, no predictions of future volume sales for foil have been found in marketing histories of the time.My mother comes to my mind ,back in the late 40's she would reuse it till it feel apart.Good memories.
