Grist Milling: Preliminary Study [2] of 9, [between 1949 and 1951]

 Item — Box: Oversize 1, Folder: 3
Call Number: MSS 7, Series II

Scope and Contents

Large, detailed sketch a windmill, although the sails are drawn in very lightly. Building is rounded, with a conical roof. Leighton probably saw this windmill during her travels in search of a functioning grist mill (related in her lengthy description, under "Writings - Grist Milling - Drafts 1 and 4" in this collection). However, no such building is incorporated into the final design.

Above is a sketch of a scoop. Top left corner is torn away.
