Mount Woodson Castle:

The windmill may at one time have been capable of pumping, but from an early period a gasolene engine was present, and the last sails on the building were certainly not workable (and even they seem to have been missing for a few years).

Also variously known as the Amy Strong House, Amy Strong Castle, Ramona Castle etc.

I've seen reports that some of the Pea Soup Andersen windmills were actually designed to produce electricity - you can apparently see power output gauges in the restaurants.

Van de Kamp - various:

Trying to track all the various Van de Kamp windmill bakeries / restaurants is pretty difficult, so this is a catch all entry for them for the moment. These peaked at 320 bakeries and outlets, three coffee shops, plus a drive-in restaurant. Major locations for these were Los Angeles and Seattle.

Coffee shops and drive-in locations given on various ads.
