Back in the day

 Received this from a reader. Pictured are the two silk mills on North Thurd Street before demolition began - the upper part was torn down and Burger King built a facility there. In the second location will be the new Turkey Hill Experience.

The start of the demolition. Notice the three water towers - one for each silk mill, and one for Keeley Stove Company. The water tower on the far left has been repainted and will be re-signed for the Turkey Hill Experience.
