1904 Sewer Lid 1904 Sewer Lid in Central Hillside. Similar Images ...based on the tags: circles, grass, leaves, manholes... This mean-looking thing had a purpose, probably, but that function has been lost to decades of expansion. The generator room was state of the art when it was installed, allowing the complex to use motors and electric lighting ahead of its competitors. Bricks from the demolished buildings. Where the drain changes shape from round concrete to arched brick. Looking through Workhouse A from the top of a silo. This building had no identity issues. My chief regret was not spending more time documenting the ghost signs around the complex. One of the old cooperage buildings is largely unchanged from when it was built. The raised section of the building houses a crane. Gopher Ordnance Works, aka the U-Lands, is a landscape where roots and boughs break apart concrete and steel. These machines are at least 100 years old.
