Voices From The Past
It’s amazing what old heating systems can tell us if we pay attention to the details left by the Dead Men who installed them.SupplyHouse.com for supporting this podcast.
WOW!, It's already near the end of the workday on Wednesday and no other comments. I almost missed this weeks podcast. It wasn't at the top of the page like usual. Great story! This story will help someone in the future that comes across an old converted coal boiler that is nearing 100 years old, that by chance, may still be in the basement of some old mansion where the last of a great generation was holding out on changing out that boiler because her father had it installed when she was a little girl. Dad said "This was the best available and will last your lifetime". We wouldn't want to make dear old dad a liar. "He's buried right over there, in the family plot on the west side of the property."
