(Broken Link Removed)


I'm not really sure as to the answer.

You see, I'm writing a story that takes place in 1851. They wrote in parchment back then, didn't they? Or did they have paper by then? Sorry, I feel stupid that I don't know this. I just want to make sure I have my facts straight.

They wrote on paper in l851

Really? Thanks so much!

  1. This was the height of the Industrial Revolution, so paper was mass-produced. They used paper in the 1850s. They'd been using paper for a long time.
