Looking across the ruined skyway that connects the two elevators. I wanted to walk across it, but my exploring parter held me back.
2011. Harris Machinery as seen from the roof of ADM-Delmar Elevator #4.
After Wilson Bros moved out, a furniture company moved in.
One of my favorite pictures of the tunnel. I am holding a bike rim and wearing a headlamp. My friend triggered the flash just behind my lower back. The fog is a temperature inversion at the entrance of the tunnel; it was 102 degrees outside of the tunnel and about 50 degrees inside, and humid.
Partier graffiti dates to when the caves were last open to the public; probably in the 1990s. This tunnel used to horseshoe between the brewery’s ice chute (left) and basement door (right, backfilled). Note the utility tunnel in the upper-right corner as well as the lighting brackets on the ceiling.
A screen above the floor apparently shields workers from the disintegrating building.
The bathtub fell into the basement, ala The Miller’s Tale. That’s right. Chaucer.
While the building looks uniform on the outside, inside it’s clearly divided between a hoist room and shaft room (seen here).
