    Hey Joe, thanks for the info! I am not sure that I would have associated a "fu fu" coffee place with historic photos on the wall. My wife will appreciate the chance to get her caffeine fix!

    Thank you for sharing the photos and info. We blew right past that area in April without knowing it even existed.

    I was able to return recently to Winslow and visit the Old Trails Museum and Mojo’s Coffee House as suggested in an earlier post. The volunteers on duty at the museum were not able to provide much more on the history of the pump station. But one of the ladies remembered that a photo of the plant had been used in one of their yearly historical calendars that the historical society publishes. She and the other volunteer graciously skimmed through the stack of past calendars and finally came across the 2002 calendar that had this photo. It is undated, but appears to have been taken later in time than the one in the post card. I was able to purchase the calendar for $3.00. This is also the photo that is on display at Mojo’s Coffee House. I have scanned the photo and included a larger format version of it along with the other photos at:

    Ernie, That photo is a nice find, it's amazing to see the extent of good ol' ingenuity.
    Your website just keeps getting better and better...those of you who haven't seen it, I'd highly recommend paying a visit, it's a great way to while away the hot summer days!
