One of the older buildings on the site, this is an old power house that provided electricity to the plant. I spent some time walking around it and believe it was fired with coal gas but had a diesel backup installed later.
The only door into a large windowless concrete room, probably a storage bin. Kodak Portra 160/Mamiya 6.
The individual ovens are skinny to allow even and fast heating of the whole interior. Numbers are cut into signs because no paint could withstand the heat or corrosive emissions from the coking process.
An abandoned gatehouse bearing the name of the former factory.
The depot of Ringling is a very lonely looking building and there are many holes in its roof. There are no signs on it whatsoever.
Looking up at the LEMP malting plant elevator. Look at that BRICKWORK!
This is an elevator to move mine car loads of sand to the surface for cleaning and eventually glass production. Below is a flooded equipment vault. In front and behind is a loop through the larger tunnels in the mine. The horizontal braces supported electric cables for the mine carts.
The light next to this acid tank was perfect, thanks to a gaping hole in the roof.
The workshop sat below the main working floor and had serious power going to it.
