The world I grew up in and took for granted has nearly vanished. Skills and technologies that were once commonplace have become the stuff of museum exhibits.
Such is the case with Ben's Mill. Ben is gone and the place has been cleaned up, whitewashed and now gawkers walk through, looking at all the funny old gadgets; but once, and not too long ago, it was a man's workplace, and a short documentary was made about it.
It's worth watching.
