This is part of the oldest section of factory, one that hasn’t had a roof in a long time and all usable equipment has been extracted. The machines pictured would spin sliced beets in boiling water… it was a sealed system before someone cut holes on sides of each unit.
Here you can see the end of the scrapping phase in 2011.
There’s concrete under that dirt… under that water… somewhere.
A scrapped steam turbine, perhaps. In the background you can see a gutted casing for another turbine.
Copper thieves haven’t left anything behind but the shell.
The turbine hall, without turbines. I guess that makes this a hall… at least it has a clock.
The pit on the left was one of two that accommodated the bottom half of the Motor Generators, which converted AC to DC.
Cauterized wounds on the factory floor, where the middle of the newer mill opens up to allow massive equipment. Now the pipes are cut and the equipment is gone.
This part of the workhouse was sheathed in fiberglass, but now you can see its insides from a mile away.
Under the monster and its teeth.
The end of one of the scrapped turbines. Judging by the aborted attempt at cutting it in half, the scrappers had some trouble with this one.
