Looking across the ruin-strewn brownfield left from ACME’s operation and demolition.
I like to think of this as the hardware abstraction layer. It’s one of many subassembly monorail conveyors that dipped onto the factory floor to deliver assembled subsections where they needed to be on the main assembly floor below.
Part of the grain dust venting system, dislodged from its place above the dumping hatches under the grain cribs.
One of two projectors, still set to run old 3D flicks.

The entry point for the painting shed on the top floor. Cars would have a few feet in between them before they entered. Separate sheds would prime and add color.
One of the last improvements to this elevator was the addition of a new scale in 1968.
The only way to get to the second floor–since demolition crews punched-out the staircases and ladders leading upwards–was to climb this elevator shaft. In the lower-left corner is a blower for the foundry furnaces.
An auxiliary crane in the corner of the foundry room.
