Fishermens Cold Storage
Fishermens Cold Storage was one of a half dozen fish processing and freezing plants that lined the waterfront in the early 20th century. Machinery kept compressed anhydrous ammonia in pipes at zero degrees to chill fish and bait. This plant, built in 1905, was sold to the giant Atlantic Coast Fisheries Corporation combine in 1937, and was torn down shortly thereafter.
