Nimbs & Clifford’s patent Floating Elevator
Daily Palladium (Oswego, NY), 14 Mar 1864

Full Text

This Elevator is admitted by all who have examined it, to be the most complete Floating Elevator ever constructed in as much as it is an Elevator and Store House combined, affording facilities either for storing grain or freight within itself, or transferring from one vessel to another or to or into cars, as may be required, thereby affording facilities for the handling of grain or freight that no other Floating Elevator can claim.

Mr Nimbs one of the patentees is now stopping at the Munger House, where he will remain three or four days, for the purpose of exhibiting models of his Elevator to all who may wish to examine them.
