Re: Tharsis Sulphur and Copper Works. for Barry
This shows Tharsis in 1935, and the land downriver from it is the mess left when Tennant Chemical Co moved out. There is a 1927 aerial view with smoke coming from Tharsis Chimney so they were working then. In this 1935 pic, no smoke from the chimney.
You can see the deep reservoir close to the lines, dead easy for Glen St kids to access which they did and some drowned in it. Still unfenced in 1935 not many years after 2 kids drowned in it. No H&S then.
