Ruster at The Pool… employee graffiti about 100 above ground.
A little catwalk gives access to the most important gauges in the building. Behind them are huge vents and fans. I bet it got steamy in here.
A view of the government presses, with pages of law across the floor covered in footprints.
On the outside of the steel silos and headhouse is a riveted bulge that does not look like the silos. Inside is this elevator, a rudimentary (read: dangerous) and old (read: dangerous) freight elevator.
The neon lighthouse, seen from the top of one of the silos.
A sign hanging near the shop office.
Inside the office was a small furnace and a collection of mechanical belts. You can see “SERVICE AT COST” and “POOL 168” in the background.
