An impressive message for graffiti in a Detroit warehouse, but then again look at these steam pumps. Over-built and under-appreciated. This section of the production floor was constantly dripping. Someone had laid down giant plastic sheeting to attempt to protect the lower floors, but it hasn’t worked. The sun was setting outside, highlighting the textures and lines that made the form of the power plant take a fourth dimension–time. The hike to the village is steep. This is looking into the valley from the halfway point. The skylights with geared-to-open windows were massive and quite functional. A 8-foot-tall volume indicator that could be read from across the beet boiler floor–convenient when the controls are 20 feet away. This elevator came crashing down, perhaps from the topmost floor. I wonder what it sounded like. This side of the mill, which abuts the Great Miami River, is much older than the other side of B Street. You can tell it went through many revisions. Shuttered windows on the side of one of the collapsing bonded warehouses.
