Island Station, in the middle of the power house, in the middle of a thunder storm. Flapping pipe covers and sheets of ran penetrating one massive arched window and blasting through the other, as winds power through the building from the Mississippi. The sound of the thunder made every length of steel squeak under the pressure.
This load of lime seems to have been left right where it was loaded.
For reasons unknown, this building’s concrete was designed a little thinly. It reminds me of a Chicago, IL building constructed during WWI when concrete and steel were strictly rationed and many buildings went up with insufficient superstructures. I do not have a build date for this one yet.
On the left, the formula for the sintering mix was written (“mischungszusammenselzung”) to keep track of the jobs.
Note the maps still left on the wall.

Part of the grain drier system in ADM #1 crawls up the side of the building like a steel vine.
