This is a typical view of the factory; most of it was long hallways flanked by piles of equipment and access points to maintain them.
I wonder if these windows were bricked after the 1950 explosion with the hopes that, if another silos blew, the people in this office would be better protected.
Looking into the half-demolished, half-dismantled conveyor for the sea leg.
The belts on these mills have long ben missing.
In the modern control room at the base of the white elevator tower are the electronics that ran the newer building, its rail components and boat-loading component. The superstructure permeates all spaces here, as can be seen with the crossing I-beams in the main office.
Note the really old carvings in the mineral-stained sandstone on the walls and ceiling. This little cave was walled-off on one end, making me wonder what the area was for. Lighting is a set of three candles and two LED flashlights and a cigarette.
The long control room overlooks giant caps where equipment was removed long ago.
Two charmers, I’m sure. This area was a coal pit for the nearby power plant.
It’s not hard to see how Germany could turn these into a prison overnight.
