City Incinerator, 1972

The 1932 city incinerator landscape had changed quite a bit when this photo was taken in 1972. Trees obscured most of the building except for the prominent chimney; that was to come down in 1990. The facility had closed as an incinerator in 1970.

  1. Interesting history here looking back through the previous posts and the SJLF history website. Wish the chimney were still standing, it would have made a nice land mark.

  2. Dave: if you think you were mad, just think how pissed off Santa Claus was when he found out.
