Seen spooling of toilet paper by hand?

Are you old enough to have seen toilet paper factory workers rolling toilet paper by the spool by hand? I wasn’t old enough to see this but I vaguely remember seeing a photo of workers sitting in a back alley, manually rolling and spooling up toilet paper, before packaging the realms up in large packs for sale.
