A rusting disconnect gangway. The smokestack is for a boiler, if I recall.
This ruined skyway looks like it should be at ground level because of the growth, but it’s actually the second floor of the building.
This steel cup on the card would move molten copper to the caster from the furnace.
Looking down Pommenicher Straße from Gaststätte Rosarius, the monstrous machine about to devour the town bites at the ground.
The last batch of molded metal stuck in the chute, this metallurgical furnace was falling apart brick by disintegrating brick b the time I got to it. On the upper floors there is a sophisticated network of vents and chimneys to make these little furnaces as hot as possible.
A sharp turn in the coatings department twists the steel out of sight.
I love the ‘hats’ on the top of the SWP-4 headhouse. FP-100C.
I like this picture because it shows some of the only unbroken windows at Packard.
From the slip where grain boats would tie for loading and unloading, the unloader juts in a modernist-architectural way that is oddly visibly satisfying. Inside that white building is the retracted boat unloader, more or less a long and sturdy conveyor attached to a joint and crane motor. There used to be four loaders that looked like simple tubes with cranes and ropes attached hanging from this side of the elevator. All that remains of those is one fixture on the white building (not visible here) and the frame of one on the elevator proper, visible in the upper-middle of this image, to the right of the unloader apparatus.
