Two signatures complement this gorgeous hand-painted sign. ‘Bowers’ from 1987 and ‘Normal’ from 1982. The blocking on the letters is still visible!
Between two brick buildings is a metal one with many windows set into it. Having been in many mills of similar design, I conjecture that this was the milling building, where machines ground the corn before it was boiled.

I like this picture because it shows some of the only unbroken windows at Packard.
A generator in the power room… steam powered.
A bumper sticker with the usual tagline. Note the detail on the radiator!

Between the catwalks of Furnace 6, the molted ore would flow through the chute.
Exploring Dock 4 was a very different experience, since it was almost all metal.
