Object Name Print, Photographic
Description Black and white photographic print depicting operations at the Champion Spark Plug Co. To the left are spray driers, and to the right is an instrument room. A sign reads "Dept. 2 - Bldg. No. 4, Spray Drying". In the background a man stands next to a scale.
Caption on verso reads, "Dept. 2 - Taken from west door in Dept 3, camera placed just south of doorway. Should show the 10', 12' and 14' and 26' spray driers and the instrument room. Tried to include the portable tank in which the Sillment is agitated. The 14' spray drier was operating and the Hummer screen was in place. Placed a regular 20# red Sillment can on the scales and have a man in the picture testing sillment with the cone as is done with every can. Hope the elevators and the small sampler at the west end of the department will show."
