Captured bolts for a pressure cooker on an industrial scale. One evening I spent an hour lighting tea candles through the tunnels below the elevator. It was a magical transformation. The mill was powered, in part, by water flowing through turbines under it. After the flow worked the industrial heart of the flour mill, it was exit to the Mississippi here. This mean-looking thing had a purpose, probably, but that function has been lost to decades of expansion. These ceramic bricks were likely from the fireproof tunnel that connected the elevators. Numbers on a pillar counted tank capacity for a removed water container; an unhinged door in an unhinged factory beguiles those looking for an exit.
