My favorite time to be in the brewery was sunrise. That’s the kind of light that made the brewhouse glow.
Somewhere between the grain elevator and the distillery.
The factory was utterly vertical.

Looking toward Fort William (Western) Elevator from the top of Superior Elevator. Fort William is bordered on the south and east by this wide, winding railyard. Note the pretty and quaint brick offices of the Western.
A rusting disconnect gangway. The smokestack is for a boiler, if I recall.
Looking down Pommenicher Straße from Gaststätte Rosarius, the monstrous machine about to devour the town bites at the ground.
