From a distance (here, Union Yards), you can still see ARMOUR spelled out on the smokestack in white brick.
I love the ghost sign across these two elevators, originally built as Superior Elevator. It’s looking pretty rough.
“Against the blue sky, its rusting central silos look like rising smoke meeting the last minutes of a sunset. These give way to a corrugated night sky of blue gray, punched-through with staggered four-pane windows, all glassless.”
