Looking up at the most conspicuous graffiti in the city on ADM #4.
Elevator B, used by a local farmer, stands behind an old farm truck at the edge of town.
This old Jetta did more offroading than your average lifted tinted loud-exhaust pickup.
Every elevator has sets of these conveyor switches. Grain comes down through the top chute and the bottom chute rotates to move the flow onto various belts around the plant by gravity. The cross belt is another switch and the bridge belt brings the flow to the other half of the elevator.
Cracked gauges have a certain quality that hearkens to movies, I think. One can imagine the gauges going off the scales before dramatically cracking, throwing glass right at the camera. This damage, however, is unfortunate vandalism.
At the extreme eastern end of the plant is a bank of modern concrete silos. Kodak Portra 160/Mamiya 6.
Offices above the labs. Note all the air handling equipment. I love the utilitarian design.
The back of the neon sign before it was converted to LED lighting. The image is mirrored so it can be read.
A bank of vertical filing cabinets, probably dating to National Guard days.
