The year is 1910. Mother Theresa was born and Mark Twain passed away. Halley’s Comet made its once-every-seventy-six-years appearance to residents of Earth. Ohio’s own William Howard Taft was president of the United States. And Dayton Bag & Burlap opened its doors for business, marking the beginning of the 110 year journey the company currently enjoys.

The amount of change that’s happened in the world since 1910 is staggering.
