Hi, my name is E. V. Smalley and I am here to tell the history of the MN flour mills
The first mill was made in St. Anthony falls. But flour dust that filled the air of the big Washburn mill acted like dynamite then exploded with a destructive force as tremendous as that of dynamite.
I wonder if this is what it looked like.
After the MN mills were descend to not explode MN were getting a bigger population of people. They started to build railroads. And bigger buildings.
DEAR MN MILLS , Twenty-six great flour mills stand in single and doublerows on both sides of the river below the falls. A great flour mill is a wonderful aggregation of delicate and ingenious mechanical processes. The whole great building hums and pulsates with a dull, buzzing noise of machinery, but no workman touches the product save in the way of supervision.
The wide apartments of the mill, crowded with machines arranged in regular lines, Minneapolis ground twenty-four million of bushels of wheat last year and expects to grind thirty million this year.
For favorable conditions for grinding wheat no place in the world can compare with Minneapolis. As a result, the word Minneapolis on the head of a flour barrel has become a guaranty of the excellence of its contents.
