Delivery Team Stable

1949, Stockhouse 4, I.356.135, Kenneth M. Wright, MNHS.org
There were three main stockhouses, two of which still exist, that are filled with tanks like these in addition to Fermentation. Each tank is the size of the city bus and few are left after the 2008-2009 scrapings.
Note that the back of Stockhouse #4 is missing. A year later, Fermentation was on the ground too.
