Updates due to recent discoveries   Leave a comment

I’ve been doing some additional research recently, both at the site and away from. I recently “discovered” that there was, in fact two different production lines; and that the yttrium building had incorporated the north production line into its construction. I also found images of the machinery that would have been used in the buildings of what I’m calling the production lines. In addition, I’ve confirmed that there are at least three buildings that are off-site that were built as a part of the Midwest Refinery Company’s initial construction and operations. More to come on this. I’ve posted more images from the tunnels, and made some other changes to this web site. Changes of this type are inevitable as new things come to light, more research is undertaken, and new contacts are made. I’ve also received permission to use images from the American Heritage Center, including the following from the Ludwig-Svenson Collection, (digital archive):

One of two views of the refinery from the east looking west. (circa 1928)

I’ve already cropped and zoomed in using this image on two of the pages on this web site. All of these images, and many others can be found at the American Heritage Center web site: http://www.uwyo.edu/ahc/index.html
