Hey Chuck if you ever get up this way we will walk the grounds again like you did as a kid and we working there. It was a great place to work and really good people like your Grandfather back then had the place running great for Mr. Neuman When Mr. Neuman died Publicker and Kinsey died with him. Dave Z.

Well here are 2 pictures of the Plant taken by me back in 2011 2 yrs ago
1. The 1966 Bottling house in the winter, you could still see the Long dock area of the 2 Football fields long building.
2. Inside the old 1933 Kinesy Bottle house looking and tanks. The Building has now fallen down so much I can no longer go in there.
It is so sad to write about the terrible ending happening at Kinsey, I could never Have dreamed this would Happen!
Kinsey The Unhurried Whisky
For Unhurried Moments
Well here are two Pictures I got from Butch awhile back, not sure if I posted them before.
1. The Docks at the Publicker Plant in Phila in 1956.
2. Philip Publicker the Brother of Harry Publicker founder of Publicker Industires, founded the American Distillery right next to Publicker in Phila. This is a Picture of that Plant before they moved out west, taken in 1954.
I hope in the next week or so for some better weather to go to Kinsey again there are rumors that someone might buy it and tear everything down. And I want to explore some more while I still can.
The Bottling House which in 1966 was state of art and the worlds Largest, is now in a complete state of ruin. I also want to get some pictures but I can't of the warehouses as Vandles have painted horrible stuff on them now. So glad I got them all years ago for this work of Love for the Old Place.

Fangzilla I don't think it will happen because the cost would be millions to tear each warehouse down, and even though they are all ruined by vandals I still love going there. Just took Joe Trish's daughter and sons there last Sunday before the storms. Joe was our Project engineer and he did amazing things in Phila and at Kinsey! Joe was a wonderful man and I was Thrilled to take his family around the plant.
Well here I am posting after a lot of terrible weather! Thankfully no more snow this week. I will have to wait till all the snow is gone to take a walk around Kinsey again, but once spring gets here I will. Last time there about 4 or 5 weeks ago I found some paper work the kid vandals had tossed around. Always looking for History Pieces. Last time there the buildings are really getting bad from water leaking everywhere in them. Hoping to got in with Butch once spring gets here before all the weeds take over. Fangzilla I have thankfully had power ever since that blackout. It was terrible sleeping in full dress with a coat on and no Lights except a fflashlight!
