Welfare House

A Welfare House from a former Cokeworks south of Buffalo. This would be the place where workers wash up, change, and lock up their belongings in the baskets. The baskets are on chains which then raise them to the top. This is for security but also originated from the theory that by raising you sweat drenched clothing upward it would dry faster than in a pile or in a locker. (scans from film, not digital)
