Zachary Taylor’s very own Scottish castle, spring-side in the Kentucky backcountry. Boarded and waiting, but in surprisingly good condition, considering the decades. I especially love the tower on the right side of the frame.
I like this picture because it shows some of the only unbroken windows at Packard.
Looking from the main shop into the boiler shop, one of three attached buildings that specialized in certain repairs. One thing that architectural photographers have to work with is an elongated “magic hour” with ideal shadowing and coloring–this photo is a result of that lighting.
The back door into the old distillery building. Not castle-like at all, sadly.
This ruined skyway looks like it should be at ground level because of the growth, but it’s actually the second floor of the building.
The substation has definite structural issues. Pictured is the sidewalk that connected the plant to the company housing.
Barrels were prepared across the street, then moved across the road with a special conveyor, seen crashed here. This is down the road from Old Taylor, and was probably a part of the Old Crow operation.
From the bottom of the skyway I looked back, my eyes tracing the vines from the marsh up the smokestacks to the perfect Midwestern sky.
A typical room in the barracks, reinforced from mortars and light shelling, possibly.
