All of these photos (for my interpretation of Cotton Candy) were taken in the Rose Garden of Lady Winston Churchill at Chartwell, in the UK. For more information and pictures about Chartwell look HERE.

In 1864 Joseph Binney founded the Peekskill Chemical Company in Upstate New York for producing carbon black.

By 1885, son Edward Binney and cousin, C. Harold Smith form a company called Binney & Smith to produce a red oxide pigment used for barn paint and carbon black for car tires.

In 1889 the yellow oxide pigment was added. There were now three colors produced, Carbon black, yellow and red.

In 1900 the company started producing slate school pencils in the new mill in Easton, Pennsylvania. Their Carbon Black wins the Gold Medal at the Paris Exposition. Lets eat Cotton Candy to celebrate!

This post is just one of many in the Color Your World: 120 Days of Crayola Challenge! Enjoy!
