Re: Photos: NP Boxcars

I realize the post was primarily about the boxcars in front of the flour mills.  But for those who are also interested in the mills themselves, the Tacoma Grain Co. mill, later the Centennial Mill, had some of its components built in the early 1890s, maybe even late 1880s.  It burned in 1947.  Some of the components of the Sperry MIll were built in the early 1890s and lasted until the early 1970s.  Schuster Parkway is now built across their footprints.
