The very top of the Administration Tower’s spiral staircase. There’s an old antenna of some kind there, as you can see.
A sheik mustard-yellow paint scheme across the roofless engine house goes great with the industrial moss and rust.
The pitch of the roof is more typical for areas with lots of snow—not the border of Ohio and Kentucky. So, I assume this roofline accommodated some equipment inside for trains—note the tracks.
The Daisy Rolling Mill has been heavily altered since it was built in the 1890s.

This picture is perhaps the most appropriate in its visual depiction of how unstable the mill was. 1. Note the lack of stairs on the spiral staircase; they’re rusted and twisted apart, not simply cut off. 2. Notice the cracked concrete on the lower left corner; that was cracking as I was standing on it taking this photo, and don’t think there’s anything under that to begin to stop one’s fall. 3. You’re looking into an open elevator shaft; its safety cage is sliced away and wide open.
A huge steel tank, one of several left over, left over from either the Ashland Oil or Allied Chemical periods.
Hanging over the crane cab, looking over at the trane-sized doors below. The steel beam tracing the left wall is the support for the gantry crane this photo was taken from.
Shadows cast by the ropes, counterweights, and backdrops.
