New Windsor Salt Office – 1953


From the collection of John Morand

A few shots of the “new” office building on Prospect street, opened in 1953. This picture shows the grand opening/ribbon cutting ceremony.

This one shows a full parking lot, and is probably taken on a regular work day, it’s dated 1952, so it must have been once exterior construction was completed?

This one shows a paved parking lot, while the picture above shows a gravel lot. This one must have been a picture taken once all the finishing touches were applied.

The building is still there at the end of Prospect and is largely unchanged in the last 60 years.

Have a good weekend everyone! See you back here Monday.
