Small stained panes and orange brick. I had no idea when I took this picture that the colored glass would turn the insides of the mill into a bright aquamarine. It was a beautiful intersection of nature and industry, in the most unintended way.
The bridge here moved workers between the dock, the approach tracks, and refueling buildings.
In the power house corner is this gratuitously gigantic doorway. It used to be even bigger, too, as indicated by the brick arch another foot over the top windows.
A burned and rusted control panel in the corner of the new hoist room.
The missiles were stored without fuel, to help prevent mishaps. This is the fuel pumping building and one of the tanks.
Because Oshkosh is close to Green Bay, the Packers are very popular there. Everywhere in the plant there were traces of ‘Cheese Head’ culture.
The sidewalks are littered with rocks.
The bottom area of the smokestacks house storage spaces. The windows of these rooms that were never completed line up perfect.
This ornamental stair is cast iron and used to connect all floors of the Administration building. Now it connects the first and second floor, then the third and fourth floors, with a strange cinder block and drywall barrier separating the new and old sections of the building. Note the insulation on the floor to seal heat into the lower floors that were used as offices until the hospital closed. On the corners of the staircase are lions, on the corners of the suspended section of stair are down-hanging pineapples. Set in the stairs themselves are shield motifs with slate tops.
Outside the Chateau, where the fuel oil tank blocks the chapel.
