Standing on a caustic tank with my head out a roof hatch, I look at the sign of the last brand to be produced here.
It is unclear when the ‘Superior Warehouse Company’ sign was put up, but it was likely around 1916-1917, when maps indicate it served as a dry goods warehouse, operated by Twohy-Eimon Mercantile Company. The Sivertson sign was likely added in the mid-1980s. In this image I tried to preserve the colors the bricks turn at sunset.
This wide skyway connected two of the inner factory buildings, where parts would have to be transported to keep the operation moving, which is why it is much wider than other bridges in the plant.
The curving corridors flanking the Administration Tower are especially ornate, though the prison-like door betrays the real purpose of the building.
Like a grave marker, a single post remembers where Dock 3 stood on the bay.
Sheet metal over the windows. A red boot sole in the tumbleweeds. Is it inside, or outside?
