“What’s that diamond thingy on the Pilot House?” you ask? It’s a 1920s-era radio transmission direction finder, a pre-radar navigation aid. Lit with diffused flash.
A closeup of the finely-carved seats in the house, presumably original to the Sattler. There are not too many of these in this kind of condition. If you have a better name for this figure than Cordelia, leave a comment.

I wanted to see the third floor to get a better view, but the third floor had already been demolished. The old walls had cascaded down the staircases. This building is gone, now, as you can expect.
On the upper floors where the sunlight is yellow–the color of flour dust, once exposed to the elements.
This building was an office and lounge for engineers. It is also demolished.
Perhaps this office was for a film studio or music producer.
A bumper sticker with the usual tagline. Note the detail on the radiator!
