Hey guys, cool community.. Thought I'd throw in the stuff I've got from a recent trip to St. Louis. This is the Armour Meat-packing plant in East St. Louis. http://www.eco-absence.org/esl/arm/ has information about the building's history.

around the side of the building, walking up to the left: http://img116.exs.cx/img116/9918/mvc005f0ts.jpg
the back of the building covered with ambiguous piping systems and such: http://img20.exs.cx/img20/4192/mvc006f0fr.jpg
this ladder goes up to an observation deck, where one could manipulate some big pressurized, external tanks: http://img20.exs.cx/img20/6108/mvc008f7dg.jpg
Most of the rooms are like this one: dark, littered with debris, and very open. No offices or anything, but just big open rooms: http://img20.exs.cx/img20/6136/mvc009f5cs.jpg
This was a room on the second story, and was very cold and wet. what you're looking at is a section of the room with a fallen pylon and a whole in the wall to the outside world: http://img190.exs.cx/img190/8414/mvc012f8ma.jpg
A view of the right building from a huge gaping whole in the left building. http://img190.exs.cx/img190/6096/mvc014f8lu.jpg
a collapsed section of wall that was very frightening but also very cool: http://img190.exs.cx/img190/3780/mvc015f7zz.jpg
on the third floor, a big empty room that was full of columns and collected water. There was a large hole in the far wall, spilling in light, and a door way to my left from here (not pictured): http://img94.exs.cx/img94/5770/mvc018f9dz.jpg
Here is the door-- big and heavy. this must've been a freezer for the meat! Doesn't look like I'm able to get over to the other side though, I wonder how far down that hole goes... http://img94.exs.cx/img94/3148/mvc017f6oq.jpg
Oh dear! What the hell is that cart doing down there, and what caused this huge hole in the floor? : http://img94.exs.cx/img94/9673/mvc016f4xw.jpg

Around this time, James and I were getting anxious to leave, mostly because we had heard cars driving past in rapid succession, and we were across the street from an operational packing plant, and it was broad daylight on a wednesday. So, after a quick hop downstairs and over to the next builiding, I managed to grab this beauty: http://img94.exs.cx/img94/245/mvc019f3qe.jpg
