Improvements Slated for Danvers, 1936

Danvers elevator, 1936.

In June 1936, the Danvers Farmers Elevator Association announced plans to upgrade its facilities, a project that included replacement of the 1902 wood-sided elevator shown here, as well as construction of a new powerhouse, coal sheds, and other buildings. B.J. Sharp, manager of the elevator association, is shown standing near the middle of this photograph.
