At the top of the workhouse, dust collection pipes weave through cross-crossing conveyors.
An iron gate separates vaults below the barracks.
The giant cog is missing on this machine, which turned a sugar slurry intro crystals. Green-blue stained glass makes the rusty machine glow in aquamarine.
A typical stretch of the assembly line.
Looking at the top of the Washburn Crosby elevator from a mirrored window in the Guthrie Theater.
The roof of the elevator was partly lit naturally with six big skylights. The less electricity pumped into a grain elevator, the less chance of a grain dust explosion.
