Coventry - Pic of the Week - February 05, 2011
This is a postcard pic from a group of postcards sent to us by Dick Donovan. S. Rand wrote to us and said, "The location of this waterwork was on the north side of Woods Lane in Coventry. The factory was on the south side of the lane. The dam and the remains of the mill pond remain as does part of the foundation of the factory. The UMC factory was actually located located across from the old Coventry Roller Carnival/Flea Market pavillion on Lake St. The UMC mill was originally a grist mill and the building still exists! There was a trolley crossing located where the blue steel tank is at this location. This was part of my old stomping grounds in my younger years. "
