An impressive message for graffiti in a Detroit warehouse, but then again look at these steam pumps. Over-built and under-appreciated.
Taken from under the headframe.
I found a historical photo of this room showing 10-foot high machines with wires hanging by the mile from looms and schematic charts.
Tucked-into the side of the concentration mill… these machines were meant to crush underground rock into a fine dust for mineral extraction.
The middle section of the smokestacks were coal hoppers, and this device would load the coal into the hoppers from the conveyor belt it rode across. The bottom section of the stacks were storage rooms while the very top were, surprise, chimneys for the power plant.
One of my favorite photos of the ADM-Delmar #1 skyway, when it stood. Taken at sunset, with the reflection of the overcast sky in the remaining windows.
I believe these hooks were meant for hanging filters to dry.
The back side of the hotel is plain, but for a fire escape.
This view of BCT shows the portico where the main entrance is at the base of the office tower, and the clock.
