Looking at ADM-Delmar #4, #1 and Kurth from the Meal Storage Elevator at sunset on one of the warmer days of December. Note the graffiti “United Crushers” that gave the big elevator its common name among locals. Also, Harris Machinery is sitting in the lower-left corner, awaiting word of its next use.
I tried to hide the graffiti from my photos, but sometimes it wasn’t possible.
The neon lighthouse, seen from the top of one of the silos.
Hanging over the crane cab, looking over at the trane-sized doors below. The steel beam tracing the left wall is the support for the gantry crane this photo was taken from.
Sunbeams under the sintering belt. Support cradles for the wires crossing the factory are falling down.
Call me angsty, but I like it. Found in the Auxiliary Hospital.
Watching the sun set behind downtown Detroit is my favorite memory from the building.
Behind the small stage is a hallway signed by practically every act that walked through its doors. There’s also a pair of palms. Since all the heat in the building collects in this area, it did seem more tropical.
This section retains water and is mostly shaded, so moss has found a way to live in the concrete.
