From the street, it’s clear that almost every window and door had boards over it, but not every building had a roof. Silly priorities.
This is a room where the actual explosive elements were mixed. In the event of an accident, this glass wall would give way before the concrete and thus direct the flames and shockwave away from the rest of the building. In other words, the glass is not just to get a lot of wonderful natural light into the building.
The cupola–the space above the silos–is surprisingly original. The building was too unstable for anyone to scrap it out. Seriously, the floor is a deathtrap.
The end of the heating line allowed glass to cool slowly, and thus be stronger.

Note the rails in the floor that guided cars to the coating line, the side of which is lined with the windows in the center of the image.
The roof has been replaced since this was taken. Hopefully, that will stem the water damage.

It is unclear whether this area was for coal dumping or ore dumping, though the huge dents in the steel plating suggests the latter.
