The last batch of molded metal stuck in the chute, this metallurgical furnace was falling apart brick by disintegrating brick b the time I got to it. On the upper floors there is a sophisticated network of vents and chimneys to make these little furnaces as hot as possible.

The iconic outline of a prairie sentinel. Quintessential rural industrial architecture.
Just outside of the blast furnace is a series of platforms and catwalks to bring workers to the stoves.
This building is now being used to grow fish.
I tried to hide the graffiti from my photos, but sometimes it wasn’t possible.
