Something One Does Not See Daily...

It's the airship shed from the Paris Universal Exposition of 1900. After the fair, George-Louis Mabille, an Amboise manufacturer bought it. An Eiffel building, they unbolted it, put the pieces on a train, and shipped it here for reassembly and use as a factory. Still going strong.

Who says recycling is a hipster thing?

Recycling is nothing new. The Mayflower of Pilgrims and Plymouth Rock fame is now a barn in IIRC Kent or Sussex.
