Even Magnificent Old Rusty Junk Is Not Safe

    My article on this magnificent hopper for sorting stones appears in Volume 3 of my series, Souvenirs of Yesteryear.  Exploring Chenango County, New York.  2010, pages 82-83.  It was photographed on 27 January 2006.

    On 14 August 2008, it was gone.  I presume that it was sold as scrap.  Alas, all that remains are the concrete pedestals that once supported this magnificent piece of old rusty junk.
