DiMola rubbish team finds more history in Elmhurst garbage cleanout

P1030682

You can’t find treasure on every job, but you’re sure to find pieces of history.

In a garbage disposal job in New York not long ago, my crew and I were tasked with the job of clearing out an century-old barn-like structure in Queens, full of junk and debris. It was located in Elmhurst, right behind someone’s home.

Amongst the rubbish, though, was an old metal coal bin that had belonged to the New York City Board of Education, according to the container’s label.

In the image below, next to the van seats, you can see the back of an old coal oven. The bathroom of the place was old, with a corner sink and ancient wood tongue-and-groove paneling that covered the walls and ceiling.

So what was this place used for? Back in the day, the homeowner told me, his grandfather ran a printing business out of this place. By the time I got to it, it had been used for nothing but storage full of memories.
