"There are many forms of grain conveyors, which generally agree in that they afford means of exposing a shower of grain to a current of highly dried and heated air. The following kinds may be cited, and it must be understood that there are many varieties and modifications of each". -excerpt from Grain Conveyors
"The methods of gathering and storing ice are entirely of American origin. In the year 1805 the first cargo of ice was shipped from Boston, Mass., to the Island of Martinique". -excerpt from Ice Elevators
