This assembly was salvaged from the water treatment plant of the former Rock Hill Printing and Finish Company facility in Rock Hill, South Carolina. Known as "The Bleachery" to locals, the facility was comprised of 6 buildings, the earliest dating back to 1925, and a reservoir. The water treatment plant was added in 1930 under a bond issued by the citizens of Rock Hill. The water plant, and items from it, are featured on Season 10, Episode 7, of the DIY Network Show, "Salvage Dawgs".
