Today, I’m in an “old stuff” kinda mood so sharing some of my favorite gems that fit into the Another Life, Another Time series.
While visiting the War Eagle Mill in Rogers, AR we were able to see the mill in operation. The mill sits on War Eagle Creek and the current mill building was built in 1973 – the fourth structure to be built as the first 3 were either washed away or burned over the mill’s history beginning in the early 1800s, including its role in the Civil War. They now provide great mill products and a slice of history to go with them. You can even order online! And let me tell you – their hot rolls were delicious when we visited and I might just have to order some myself! And they have gluten-free and organic products – since they focus on all natural products.
So I am sharing some photos, including some of the mill in action. I like these because you can tell the wheels are spinning in the photos. (And it is part of Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge Man Made)
On a recent trip to west Texas for hunting with my Hubby, I found this Chevrolet C60 in the field. I can’t seem to find a good bit of information on it or the MID equipment which is probably a vendor of PTO machinery. If you have any information please share!
(Post edited to correct G60 to C60 thanks to one of my readers!)
Today, while driving around thru rural AR (Gentry) my hubby spotted this old house, barn and a gem of a truck. Of course, I LOOOOVVE old stuff. The history and the stories that live in them….!!!! So after looking over the pictures and doing some research I found out that it appears to be a 1954 Chevrolet 4400 flatbed truck. (here is a link to a restored model – courtesy of Wikipedia) To add more to the story, there is a knob that reads “MUNCIE”. Come to find out this is a power take off more than likely added to it for driving machinery not on the truck – typically on tractors (another link to Wikipedia telling you about power take offs).
So enjoy a little bit of history and mystery!!
