New Brewhouse, 2005 2005. Looking at the brewhouse from the top of the staircase the goes to the tunnels. Similar Images ...based on the tags: pillars, staircases... A staircase leads behind three of the dock chutes, seemingly to nowhere. The lower on the left held one end of a string of lights above the dock. A photo from my first trip, although very little has changed in this area of the building except for the level of graffiti. I love skylights, don’t you? Model: Ryan. On the second floor between wooden joists and massive, inert lighting is simply nothing but warped wood, stained with crane grease. Pillars among trees… those who inherit the earth will be so confused. The office was redder than the rest of the building. A comrade lights-up where so many workers apparently congregated to do the same. This roof hasn’t budged under the weight of snow, instead it just filters-through the light onto the floor. Chicago looks in as we look out, for holes and trolls where anything goes. The scale of the grain hoppers helps tell the story of how large Hamm’s was in its day.
