I can't add anything to where the plant was in Boonton, but I can tell you that if you want to check out
the product, a long line of them still exist along the former Sussex Branch north (RR west) from the old
Waterloo Road crossing. Most are single posts but some are like this, with angled supports.

Of course, THIS caught my eye! Does anyone know where this cement post plant was in Boonton? There was a whole lotta industry back in those days, so I'm curious where they might have placed such a large facility.
