Not a part of the Foundry, but the Enclosed Body Building. The rebar welded over the windows and the rust patterns with the lighting makes this geometric photos one of my favorites from the year.
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 door covered in pen graffiti.
My favorite shot from the trip. Later in its life, the plant was converted to burn its own byproducts, but it seems this was designed as a coal hopper.
One of the hundreds of wells across the depot, as seen through an open rail door. In the distance, the radome.
There are 700 of these storage bunkers. Their design was to funnel explosions upward, rather than toward other buildings, to minimize secondary explosions.
Note the tiled floor between the bucket conveyors and an old mill.
The Wheeler Rec Center was very nice and included gymnasiums and a pool.
