Fall in line, act skinny, watch out for low hanging pipes. Don’t ask me where in the maze this was… 90% of the plant looked like this; vast rooms and catwalks with crisscrossing pipes and valves.

A heavy steel device locks the anchor up.
The most derelict of the old bonded warehouses. Note the barrel elevator on the side of it!
Officers got houses and the honor of living near other officers. They call it Officer’s Row.
Furnace #6; its catwalk and tapway. Note the lever-operated gutter-blockers.
Pipes to channel nitrose (think nitro glycerine) infused acid through the building.
