    E-2 Would have been Bermel’s Monument Works.

    Countless afternoons passed with me outside that filthy wooden building. I would watch for hours as the men worked and sweated at making tombstones. They had air operated hand chisels, and they would rough-cut the granite and send it elsewhere for grinding and polishing. They moved those pieces of stone with an overhead crane and a hand-truck.

    Once in a while if you were lucky, you’d get to see the outside Electric gantry crane; which rode on rails like a train, and the pale yellow wooden cover advertised the name Bermel.
