Touted as "The World's Greatest Building Paper," this magazine was avidly read by those in the construction and building material trades. Topics in this issue discussed war construction economies, cashing in on the farm boom, jobs and profits in repairs, the postwar market, better sill construction, and many more. The advertisements are just as interesting as the content!
