January 20, 1944 This building was erected by regular Street Department employees using Salvage material saved from the fire of the old Davis Machine Shop, also from salvage corrugated sheet metal from Fort Ethan Allen. The remainder of the building was constructed of lumber obtained by cutting pine trees in the Airport woods and hauling them to the saw mill at Essex Jct. and Winooski where they were cut into timber and boarding. The only new material purchased for this building was the corrugated sheet metal used for facing the south side of the building which was not completed at the time this picture was taken. The main building is 90 feet in length and 28 feet in width with a clearance of approximately 14 feet to the eaves, the doorways being approximately 10 ft. X 18 ft. Between each doorway is a 12 ft. X 28 ft. bin with sloping sidewalls where all salvage is classified and stacked and then disposed of to junk dealers. All materials having any salvage value are saved, sorted and disposed of through the facilities of this building. The two small lean-to sheds at the easterly end of the building were originally used for WPA (Work Projects Administration) construction crews, one of these sheds will be used as a garage for the Allis-Chalmers tractor which will be used with a reversible bulldozer blade sidewalk snow plow to push the refuse through the back doorways and over the bank after the salvage material has all been sorted out. When the building is completed it will be painted with camouflage asphaltum paint which has been donated for the purpose. See also mcalA02F05i13 Burlington Dump
