I was squatting overnight in one of the buildings and woke up with the sunrise. This is what I woke up to.
A chalkboard halfway to the headhouse is untouched since the mill closed. It still has the cheat sheets!
Looking up at the LEMP malting plant elevator. Look at that BRICKWORK!
I love that the administration building–almost 100 years old now–still carries the original name.
Looking down Pommenicher Straße from Gaststätte Rosarius, the monstrous machine about to devour the town bites at the ground.
Somewhere there was a hoe left on the ground. Given that we had read articles about photographers being mugged around the abandoned projects, we felt it wouldn’t hurt to carry this around. I am glad we did; it made a great musical drumstick against the warped Wheeler Rec Center floor.
Spare parts ready for this building’s reactivation.
A switchboard to control the flow of electricity into the plant from the city and generators.
Looking out of the American diesel crane at the gantry crane that ran the length of the dock.
