HOLLEY – In this picture from December 1910 we see a temporary concrete mixing plant east of Holley.
It would have been used when the canal was last enlarged. Note a steam engine in the right side of the picture. Power poles in the background are that of the B. L. & R. trolley system which ran from 1908 to 1931 through Orleans County.
