There It Goes!

December 11, 1939, Appleton Post-Crescent
As in other years when residents saw the destruction of longtime landmarks like the old Wooden Ware by fire, or the razing of the old Gilbert smokestack, so these citizens saw yet another landmark fall.  Despite the reluctance of the oldtimers in seeing city icons disappear, ii can also bring forth new economic growth, albeit somewhat delayed at times.  The next year, Banta bought the land and used it in later years for the expansion of its Ahnaip Street plant.
