The Cross of Loraine served as the international symbol of tuberculosis; it was traditional to find these on sanatorium smokestacks like this, which was part of the old steam plant, behind the Refractory.
One of the older buildings on the site, this is an old power house that provided electricity to the plant. I spent some time walking around it and believe it was fired with coal gas but had a diesel backup installed later.
The stage of the theatre still holds hymnals and other vestiges of its time as a church.
The roof was in bad shape, but too beautiful to avoid. This is the spot were I used to study medieval Latin.
This was not always the top of the elevator.
I am not sure what this structure is, but it seems to be put together like a gold mill. It existed in 1952, and seems to be from about that period.

Looking up at the LEMP malting plant elevator. Look at that BRICKWORK!
