Two major fires that destroyed the old Elco and Electro Dynamic sites. The first fire was in 1963 and the first batch of photo's show the aftermath. The second group of photo's will deal with the fire that would destroy Building 21 on September 3, 2001.

# 95 The water tower with Electro Dynamic logo still standing after the fire. To the right of the tower is what is left of the Boiler Room.

#96 What is left of the old machine Shop in front of Avenue A.

#97 A crane removes the rubble in what was once Building 2 of Elco.

#98 Electro Dynamic workers Morris Hagen ( left ) and Sal Marino search the rubble for castings that might be salvaged and sent to area machine shops.

#99 Destroyed beyond repair are what was once Building 1 & 2

#100 The building left standing is building 7D. The vault was on the second floor. To the right was the area for smaller production of AC Motors. To the left of this in the background is Building 21.
