About the Photos

Our holdings include hundreds of glass and film negatives/transparencies that we've scanned ourselves; in addition, many other photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs) in the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) They are adjusted, restored and reworked by your webmaster in accordance with his aesthetic sensibilities before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here. All of these images (including "derivative works") are protected by copyright laws of the United States and other jurisdictions and may not be sold, reproduced or otherwise used for commercial purposes without permission.

Vats Dat?

Those larger items around the rim - I rather imagine they are hand-tightened bolts so the cover can be removed without tools. Might I be correct there?

Vats all folks

I grew up in smelling range of Hoffman LaRoche, Nutley when they used to make B vitamins there. Now I live about 2 minutes from the place. They closed down the Nutley facility about three years ago. I drive by there a few times a week and one by one the buildings are being knocked down. Lots of jobs lost, probably a good chunk of tax revenue for Nutley too. The property borders rt3 east in Clifton which is seeing a renaissance of sort as a shopping area haven. Presumably that is the fate of the Hoffman LaRoche campus. In it's day it was a city unto itself.

Time Sensitive

The timber platforms are pretty interesting. I'm not sure when the FDA nixed that but it was only stainless steel framing and grating in the mid-'80s when I worked as a cosmetic chemist.
