Blast Furnace 7 as seen from the ore yard. Imagine running up those stairs through blast furnace smoke.
One of two projectors, still set to run old 3D flicks.
A passing cloud almost looks like a puff of smoke from the trimmed smokestack of Consolidated D. In the lower corner you can see a little Stonehenge that someone with a sense of humor and heavy equipment built.
In the quality assurance labs there is a old safe.
My favorite shot of 2011; a rusty mold for a heart-shaped glass candy dish in its natural environment, so to speak.
A sizable crane on the corner of the engine house still swings out.
The underground portions of the engine shop were mostly filled in.
The nitrating house was a chemically dangerous place, so it had thick metal and concrete shield for every station right next to an emergency shower.
From the bottom of the skyway I looked back, my eyes tracing the vines from the marsh up the smokestacks to the perfect Midwestern sky.
