Wearing a mask for protection against the clouds of wood flour.
I'm surprised that my camera survived the atmosphere there!

At Work in the Mill

There is a ''Pin-up' calendar in the background (better seen in Photo 1!)
a common site in most of the workplaces that I visited in the 1990s.

The Scales

It didn't take long from them to acquire a thick covering of wood flour.

More Machinery

I think these machines were probably grinding the wood into wood flour.  I'm not sure.

The fire hydrant in the background looked as if it may well be needed at some stage.
