Cupola’s Worst Days A collapsing and unstable building. Similar Images ...based on the tags: collapsing, power, rusty, smokestacks, trestles... The room on the right with the higher doors is the coal receiving room; this used to have a trestle that elevated coal trains over it, so they could dump into basement silos. I wonder how sheltered workers on this mid-level catwalk that follows the ore chutes is in storms. Note the chunks of concrete stuck in the catwalk grates–the pockets (right) are falling apart. The turbine hall sported a beautiful Whiting gantry crane. The tallest dock structure is an equipment elevator that connects the many dock levels. A sheik mustard-yellow paint scheme across the roofless engine house goes great with the industrial moss and rust. One of the many fireproof bridges connecting the factory sections, one way to prevent fires from spreading throughout the plant. The dredge is divided into four levels. The top level has controls for the tailings boom and, when it was there, the bucket excavator. Near Isabella, MB, frozen flooded fields expand to the horizon. Taken on a Voigtlander 25mm f/2.5 if you were wondering. Looking up the rock house.
