Saving a Turn of the Century Garage at Wittenberg

P1190633Last week a 6 x 9 meter garage was removed for safety reasons on Wittenberg's campus. However, inside was a beautiful brick-flooring that dates to the turn of the century. This gem will be added to our areas for work later this summer when Wittenberg's Summer College “Digging for Our Past” participates in an excavation on campus. See the transformation of the site before and after below.

The garage has plumbing from a famous Memphis plumbing and gas company JA Bailey & Co. On the right you see the pump amidst the demolition of the garage (see below). A close-up of the company impression still wonderfully preserved in this garage.
