On June 12th, 2003, my friend and I were driving home from shopping in Ashtabula via Route 20 and decided to stop and take a look inside of TRASH & TREASURES Antique Barn.
When you get to TRASH & TREASURES Antique Barn, you will be greeted by this scene in the front lawn near the road:
You will also be greeted by this cow:
We were greeted by one of the owners and she was a kindly elderly lady who had been sitting there putting together a photo album for an upcoming festival in Ashtabula Harbor. The book contained all kinds of pictures of different aspects of Ashtabula History. The great thing about these pictures was that each picture was reproduced from actual glass negatives. She said there were over 100 of these negatives which were stored by someone in New York who developed new photos as needed.
Below you will see one of the pictures of a Hewlett in Conneaut, Ohio made from one of these glass negatives.
Please Click on the Picture for a larger View.
A Mr. Hewlett invented the Hewlett machine which was
designed for loading ore into large seagoing ore ships. He was allowed to
place his Hewlett in Conneaut Harbor with the condition that if it didn't work,
he was to remove it himself. It DID work.
The have recently been dismantled.
