Jeffrey Lime Pulver   Save
Jeffrey Manufacturing Company Collection
Description: This Lime Pulver operating in the Jeffrey Manufacturing Company yard in Columbus, Ohio, is being powered from the rear wheel of a Ford automobile, June 5, 1914. This was a demonstration of an alternative power source as Pulvers were normally powered by portable steam engines or internal combustion engines. They were designed to pulverize limestone into a fine powder that was spread on farmland to enrich the soil and raise crop yields. View on Ohio Memory.
