Looking up at the LEMP malting plant elevator. Look at that BRICKWORK!
During the Cold War, the Air Force used the radar station to train bombardiers in radar-guided ordinance.
My favorite time to be in the brewery was sunrise. That’s the kind of light that made the brewhouse glow.
The pitch of the roof is more typical for areas with lots of snow—not the border of Ohio and Kentucky. So, I assume this roofline accommodated some equipment inside for trains—note the tracks.

The flour mill (rear) and its elevators. The taller elevator was moved here in 1955, when the Harrisons bought it from Federal, who declared it surplus. The smaller elevator replaced an earlier smaller warehouse in 1926. Taken shortly after dawn. This one picture made the drive worth it, for me. Medium Format.
