This 100-foot tall Aermotor LS-40 Tower that was built in 1933. As it sits today, a majority of the boards are missing, but the cab seems to have a majority of its glass panels still in there, as well as the stand for where the Osborne fire finder would have been, but the fire finder itself is no longer present there.
