I like to think of this as the hardware abstraction layer. It’s one of many subassembly monorail conveyors that dipped onto the factory floor to deliver assembled subsections where they needed to be on the main assembly floor below.
Asbestos-cord-wrapped glass tongs piled in a shed next to the pouring line.
Looking down at the Port Arthur Ore Dock from Manitoba Pool Elevator #3. The conveyor belts are gone and King Elevator is in the far distance.
Interlocking bricks at the mouth of the stoker-less boiler.
The woman in the wall has the bed; is pulling it in; is holding you down…
The machine stood the Atlas missile up vertically over the blast pit, launching position, once the roof opened.
The end of the monorail in the nitrating house.
A quick vertical panorama taken on my back at the sweet spot of a great summer sunset. On the skylight is the torch-cut catwalk that used to link the outside of the smokestacks that vented the cupolas.
