Location #3 – The Swift Meat Packing Complex
It was hard to find a wall or surface that didn’t have a fresh coat of paint. If anything, as discouraged as it should be, the paint sealed walls were actually better preserved and wear was limited in those areas. That said tagging is a felony in some areas.
Looking out from Cold Storage #2, we decided to move inward and check several of the other buildings in the complex.
This was part of a grinder used to make bone meal
Chutes to drop freshly ground bone meal into different (now gone) bins
Other buildings in the complex we didn’t get to. This was where they made Dial Soap. You do know that what soap is made from right?..
Tracks to oblivion
Follow the Red Brick Road – In my minds eye I could see dozens of workers pushing carts and racks with slabs of meat and dollies filled with other products being moved from building to building or being loaded onto refrigerated railcars.
Many thanks to my partner “Ro” for accompanying me on this exploration. I will be back.
