Looking up from the ground floor at the various levels of the sugar mill.
Some local kids were having a fire extinguisher fight when I walked into the lab one day.
One boat comes into port while three wait. The birds, fat from spilled grain, circle overhead. Arista 100.
Now, to add a human scale.
The curving corridors flanking the Administration Tower are especially ornate, though the prison-like door betrays the real purpose of the building.
This ornamental stair is cast iron and used to connect all floors of the Administration building. Now it connects the first and second floor, then the third and fourth floors, with a strange cinder block and drywall barrier separating the new and old sections of the building. Note the insulation on the floor to seal heat into the lower floors that were used as offices until the hospital closed. On the corners of the staircase are lions, on the corners of the suspended section of stair are down-hanging pineapples. Set in the stairs themselves are shield motifs with slate tops.
One of my favorite shots from that year, conveyor line parts stacked and hung with Postal Service bins from decades ago.
A late look at the brewhouse, long after the stainless steel tanks were scrapped.
