    Scope & contentThis portfolio contains individual sheets of measured drawings to the specifications of the Historic American Engineering Record, Department of the Interior, reduced to 8 1/2 by 11-inch format.

    9 drawings of Betz's Mill, Pennsylvania

    6 drawings of Bahr's Mill, Pennsylvania together with copies of a selection of rougher measured drawings

    The drawings completely detail the mill structure and its extensive water-powered flour and feed milling machinery. Four sheets present clear perspectives of the flow of wheat and corn through the complex milling processes. These are probably the most complete measured drawings of an existing American water-powered roller mill.
