A look at another “Belt-o-Vator”. I like the sign.
Like many mill-style buildings of the time, the Twohy’s loading doors (in this case, the delivery wagon doors) opened to an elevator shaft. This design cut down on loading time, as long as the elevator was operational. Of course, if it was otherwise occupied, there could be no traffic through the exterior doors!
A big sign marks where the elevated walkway is severed where Dock 2 used to meet Dock 3, now gone.
A closeup of a flour chute.
The guard shack protecting the Nike launch pad.
The large domed rooms were surreal.
This elevator came crashing down, perhaps from the topmost floor. I wonder what it sounded like.
The control room was used through the mid-1990s as the plant was used to stabilize the power grid.
On the top floor of the former casket building is the finishing line for the coating section; on this section the final spray of plastic would hit the wood before a small furnace would seal the plastic permanently to the surface, making it more resilient, I assume.
