A typical breaker. A series of hoppers near the road where dump trucks deposited their cargo. The rocks ran through a sifter, then up a conveyor into the breaker, which ground them into the proper size. Empty dumptrucks received the uniform gravel product below. UPDATE: Property is in use as a dump depot, but the building is still there.
