Notes
Survey number HAER CT-155-A
Significance: The four story brick building originally housed finished part storage, packing and shipping departments. It occupies the center of the block east of Organ Street. Between 1960 and 1965 the third and fourth floors were modified to accommodate the plastics molding department. Building 24 was significant as a component of the Bryant plant. The building is an example of a general purpose warehouse, a portion of which was successively adapted for light manufacturing operations. Remnants of conveyors, hoppers and chutes show that considerable effort was placed on efficient material management and inventory storage. The building is significant as an example of a mid-twentieth century plastics manufacturing technology successfully adapted to the space and plan limitations of earlier factory architecture.
