Old Stone Mill, Delta, Ontario

We now move to the "husk", the robust timber foundation that supports the millstones. In this photo, starting on the left we see the bottom of the flour elevator that takes the newly ground flour from the millstones and moves it up to the third floor for processing. Then we see part of the husk surrounding the electric motor we now use to power the millwheel. Then the waterwheel. Originally the hust would have been higher and there would have been physical gearing (of iron and wood) connecting the millwheel to a centre spindle that provided rotation power to the entire mill.
