Who wouldn't want a chocolate tub?

http://beaumont.craigslist.org/atq/3328203296.html
"We recently got access to a long closed building and came across several of these steel bathtubs on really cool old wheels. Some have markings that say " semi-sweet" and "dark" plus a few have a sticker on the back that says "cocoa butter recovery". It doesn't exactly take Sherlock Holmes to deduce that they were used in some type of Chocolate production facility and from the looks of them, I'd say they are at least 100 years old. They are shaped exactly like a classic claw footed bathtub and are SERIOUSLY comfortable to lie down in. There is no drain but I'm sure that a drain can be cut into it. They measure 58" long, 30" wide and 22" high and weigh about 225 pounds. They could be used for: Bathtub, planter, dog wash tub, cooler, fire ring, open BBQ, or any manner of retail displays. The wheel on front pivots very smoothly and it looks like you could weld a handle onto it and make it either a pull type wagon or MAYBE even a steering wheel ................................... although I'm not sure what to do for a braking system.We have several of these but they are EXTREMELY COOL and I really don't expect them to last."

Too bad the spam got so bad. Some of us have been spending time at the new community for folks with a love of old houses at wavyglass.org
