old Thomspon Boat factory in Peshtigo

Postby LancerBoy » Wed May 25, 2011 5:24 am

Here is a picture showing the former Thompson Boat factory in Peshtigo. The subject of the picture is the glued laminated timber arches on the rig ready to head out to a jobsite in Lower Michigan (Blue Lakes Music Camp).

But you can see the Thompson woodworking room directly behind the rig. That portion of the factory was constructed in 1949 - to replace a burnt down building.

The picture is from 10-15 years ago.
