Description of the box mangle

In 1855, alderman Wilhelm Bretthauer and his companion Karl Reinhardt from Hagenburg built the biggest box mangle of Schaumburg-Lippe in a specially erected building on the property no. 27 in Steinhude, Graf-Wilhelm-Straße 10. Until then, all the linen products coming either from the looms or the bleaching went directly to Bremen or Hamburg for retailing. The building and its equipment is still largely in its originial condition and is being restaured.
