The cinder blocks have aged well.

I’m not sure they’re cinder blocks, Ken. They may be pressed-tin siding. In fact, I’m pretty sure they are. Sorry not to have replied sooner. I was on a little vacation.

Nice! I keep trying to make out what it says. Something Elevator.

You’re doing better than I am; I can’t make it out at all. There is a line beneath this one, though, in red, that I can read at a bigger enlargement. It says, “CUSTOM GRINDING & MIXING.”

And another line underneath with the address maybe? I bet you could find some info online in local county history sources. But you’re probably too smart to get sucked down that rabbit hole! 😉 I don’t want to say how many hours I spent delving through stuff for that ship post. Yikes, retirement is something else!

I did do quite a bit of research into Jeromesville, where this grain elevator is. Yes, it was a rabbit hole. I was just looking for a photograph of this elevator when it was young. I wound up reading the history of the town in a book giving the history of the whole county. At least I didn’t get sucked into the rest of the county. And I never did find a photograph of the elevator when it was young. . . . OK, I worked at it some more: The line under the one written in red reads “Farm Supplies Coal Builders [something]. Yes, retirement has way too many rabbit holes for people trying to DO something besides go down them. . . . Your research shows, nicely, on your ship post.
