It's made by Morse Boulger. Anyone know anything about it?

What you have there is an incinerator made by morse boulger destructor company, builders of incinerators for disposal of waste.

Complete illegal to use be todays environmental laws.

Ahh man, and here I thought I found a cool boiler, it does have some pipes connecting to the back of it...well, they are disconnected now but they were there. I mean, it's still cool but I thought it was something more than it is.

Thanks for the info. This bank in question is odd. It's got a lot of weird rooms in it. And it has what appear to be "classrooms" in the basement. I'm wondering if it was at one point in time a school.

Edit, I also fixed the name. Stupid smartphone.

Edit 2, I wish there was more information on the internets about it. I can't find anything.

Sometimes these things had a gas burner on them to help light the fire and ensure hot, clean combustion.

I haven't seen too many. Almost every school district before the 1970's had one at one time. When the clean air laws change, they were ripped out. They were not even abandoned in place as no one wanted to be accused of operating it.

Probably was there to burn papers for confidentiality and security.
