Looking through the center of a scrapped generator, its copper long scrapped.
One of the generators, weeks before it was taken apart to be shipped to another power plant somewhere else.
This machine was last overhauled in February 1955, and last turned out Crepe silk, probably dress material.
A 1960s style TV set in a sun room at the back of the poor house. The concrete room survived the roof collapse and was full of rotten children’s books and toys. Perhaps it was where donations were sorted, or perhaps it was a nursery/orphanage area.
A classic Eveready, borrowed from Herb’s office.
Gloves hang in the basement of the former quality assurance labs.
I am not sure what this machine does, but I have a hunch that it husks and cleans the sugar beets as they come into the plant. It is certainly the biggest single piece of equipment in any of the mills.
Behind the main shaft is this familiar industrial sight… a running count of days since the last injury.
There are so many pipes i the factory–I wonder how many people knew where they all went, in the days these machines operated at capacity.
