One of my favorite signs, informing workers about to descend into the open-top grain bins about basic procedures. This was in ADM-Annex 1 (connected to the cleaning house via skyway), so it will never be seen again, unless the sign lands luckily when the elevator is demolished.
To make sure the tourists aren’t scared off, the city painted the side of the elevator with one of its historic names.
A facade that tells the story of demolition and neglect. The sign on the garage door indicates that if one finds themselves there, that they enter the buildings at their own risk. If only property owners in the US took this philosophy!
Two signatures complement this gorgeous hand-painted sign. ‘Bowers’ from 1987 and ‘Normal’ from 1982. The blocking on the letters is still visible!
The cornerstone of the building, in Latin.
Behind the main shaft is this familiar industrial sight… a running count of days since the last injury.
Shells of mixing buildings.
Fire doors separate the buildings.
A wimpy crane by most standards, only suitable for moving around parts of steam turbines.
