The coke plant looked more natural through a grimy window.
The hospital was surrounded by walking paths that crisscrossed the front green, as it was called. Part of Kirkbride’s plan was to have ample opportunities for exercise outdoors–fresh air, especially cold fresh air, was thought to have curative properties.
The roof of the elevator was partly lit naturally with six big skylights. The less electricity pumped into a grain elevator, the less chance of a grain dust explosion.
At night the city lights blast through the broken windows, casting crazy colors through the off-white interior of the mill.
It’s a small world… look at it.
My favorite shot of the 17-story Art Deco office tower attached to the train station.
An unintentional skylight makes the inside of the office glow, showing the inside of the front door and its strange lock.
