This pump seemed to pump some sort of fibre material. Lots of it splattered. This is possibly asbestos.

This poor bench... I wonder who worked here, and what they did.

These appeared to be mixing basins of some sort.

A rather dark photo, showing some of the factory layout. I still like it regardless of the darkness.

Some large boiler unit.

Not much to say here... Just a creepy corridor

An interesting setup. I imagine this was some sort of chemical reaction network? Or a chiller of some sort.

A large Roller Press. I believe I saw this piece of machinery last year sitting outside down behind "Smoke on the Water" in downtown City of Tonawanda. I do hope someone salvaged it.


missing
Some large exhaust vents. Likely lined with asbestos.

Just a cool artsy shot....

An overview of sorts.
