One of my favorite photos of the ADM-Delmar #1 skyway, when it stood. Taken at sunset, with the reflection of the overcast sky in the remaining windows.
Artifacts from the days this was a furniture factory and warehouse.
The top floor’s old-fashioned hospital ways were too much to pass without a photo or two… with the paint falling off the walls it was as if the building was shedding its skin in an effort to become rejuvenated or useful.
Jef throws open the back door of an alley for the trailing photographers and historians.
This skyway, built to help seal off two parts of the complex during an out of control fire, was probably too rotten to burn by the time I saw it.
While the building looks uniform on the outside, inside it’s clearly divided between a hoist room and shaft room (seen here).
2016. A section of the third floor that has changed a lot over the years. Compare to 2006 shot.
