Looking down the kiln line from atop the furnaces.
This rod mill (?) was made in Denver Colorado at a factory now buried by condos. #justdenverthings
Workers’ lockers, strewn across Main Street, yet still out of the way.
The rear of engine bay 13… according to the heavily faded sign.
The last batch of molded metal stuck in the chute, this metallurgical furnace was falling apart brick by disintegrating brick b the time I got to it. On the upper floors there is a sophisticated network of vents and chimneys to make these little furnaces as hot as possible.
A huge steel tank, one of several left over, left over from either the Ashland Oil or Allied Chemical periods.
This is part of the oldest section of factory, one that hasn’t had a roof in a long time and all usable equipment has been extracted. The machines pictured would spin sliced beets in boiling water… it was a sealed system before someone cut holes on sides of each unit.
In the nitrating house.
This mean-looking thing had a purpose, probably, but that function has been lost to decades of expansion.
