This is what I thought was the find of the whole trip! It was a complete, untouched case of Skychief lenses for glass bodies. It was hidden behind some boxes on a lower shelf and when Tom reached down and pulled this box out, we were all speechless! What a treasure!

I toured their bulk plant about 10 years ago. It was amazing to walk around on the grounds. It looks like nothing has changed since then. Brady

There were a lot of junk pumps and parts left over from the gutting process and they were all loaded into a large steel recycling dumpster. It wouldn't hold everything we wanted to put into it, but we worked pretty late into the night, trying to get it as full as we could!
