Hastings Sunset Even in monochrome, you can probably tell what colors were over Hastings that evening: Red, White, and Blue. Similar Images ...based on the tags: black&white, rooftops, sunsets... Looking at the rear of the mill, through dead vines and barbed wire. An article from Minnpost describes this design as “marital”, and I could not agree more. Grain is taken from the bottom of the silos through a conveyor in a tunnel. These blowers keep the air in the tunnel fresh. Sunset came fast, and when the good light died inside the Industrial Loft, I walked around the back to find the whole complex glowing. An old nurse’s station (you can tell because of the half-door with table) with torn-up tiles. Notice through the curved doorway that even the ceiling has a curvature. Aluminum spools replaced their wooden counterparts, later in the factory’s history. The pitch of the roof is more typical for areas with lots of snow—not the border of Ohio and Kentucky. So, I assume this roofline accommodated some equipment inside for trains—note the tracks. A jankey ladder leads to a platform over a wooden tank. Here’s hoping my usage contributes to jankey being accepted into the dictionary! Thanks, lexicographers. Bits and things in a pile in the corner of the smelter, the unsold chunks of industrial history that didn’t sell at an on-site auction before my visit.
