Men grind and grind in the mill of a truism
but nothing comes out but what was put in.
(Ralph Waldo Emerson)

The Elevator


Elevators are the main means of transport of grain and grist. In vertical wooden double pipes a textile belt runs over a pulley up and down, carrying metal scoops every 30-40 cm for taking the grist.
To the left you can see through a window into the elevator: there is a belt with a scoop.
