Here is a picture of the Advance Thresher Factory Main Office Building as it appears today. Since discontinuing manufacture of engines and threshers it has been occupied by a distillery and temporarily used as a warehouse by various stores and businesses. Note plaque on front. Address is Kendall and Grand Trunk Avenues.

Also note the boarded up windows and one on top floor is broken. It has been stripped bare of most all machinery. Any one want to start threshing machinery manufacturing?
