Old Stone Mill, Delta, Ontario
Prev | Index | Next
A bit messy perhaps (in fairness to us, this space is not open to visitors :-) - but it shows some of the stone foundations and the bottom of an older flour elevator (the "elevator boot"). Much of the first floor was replaced during two periods of restoration (1972-1974 & 1999-2004) and these foundation stone columns were rebuilt at that time. Much of the large timber supporting structure of the first floor also dates those restorations.
The dark colour is not from fire but from hot animal fat used to grease the bearings that soaked into the wood.
