Washington Salvage Yard
The old sayings "everything old is new again" and "one man's trash is another's treasure" certainly applies to the salvage business. Today, the range of man-made materials being recycled into new products is growing and includes all kinds of metals, rubber, plastics, paper and more.
Combining office and a large work area into one structure, Washington Salvage is typical of the main buildings at many businesses, especially today's materials recycling facilities found in many communities. And, this combination of brick office and steel garage structure has been common since the 1960s, so your model could also serve as a county or city highway department garage, bus barn for a local mass transit authority, construction company offices, truck or farm equipment dealership or any one of hundreds of similar businesses.
