The head distiller could walk out of their office to this balcony and overlook the whole fermentation process in a glance.
Heavy wood doors for keeping people in.
A door covered in pen graffiti.
The only thing that signals that this was an office building, rather than another production floor, is the small amount of wood paneling that remains.
One of the ugly modern staircases.
This is part of the oldest section of factory, one that hasn’t had a roof in a long time and all usable equipment has been extracted. The machines pictured would spin sliced beets in boiling water… it was a sealed system before someone cut holes on sides of each unit.
Platforms and abandoned outbuildings, as seen in 2005.
Where the drain changes shape from round concrete to arched brick.
I wonder if these windows were bricked after the 1950 explosion with the hopes that, if another silos blew, the people in this office would be better protected.
