The Ganong factory has what is believed to be the oldest operating candy machine in the world. It is a lozenge machine that has produced lozenges since 1889 when it was installed on the third floor of this building. During a factory fire in 1903 two such machines crashed through the floor and were badly damaged. Factory mechanics were able to salvage enough parts from the two to rebuild one machine and it is still going strong at the new Ganong plant today and produces more than three million lozenges each week.
