A goodly portion of the fun of exploring lost places is attempting to figure out the puzzles left behind.

Tabula Rasa and I had minor disagreement (as happens not infrequently with us) regarding the metal roof of this building and the cool dapples of light it lets in.  I say that hail damage coupled with standing water rusted certain spots of the metal faster, causing the holes.  He disagrees.  We both found it fascinating and wonderful.

Then we have a boiler?  or a furnace?  Let me know if you have an idea, either way these were huge beasts of machines, tucked into a too small room.

The slide of why?  Obviously little boxes were sent down this slide, I just cannot fathom with as large as the factory was why they would be sending one little box at a time down a slide into the second floor of another building.  It seems, inefficient.

But the largest puzzle of all in this location was the clothes.  Bales and bales of clothes that had been sitting so long they were full of algae and covered in moss.  (And probably less pleasant to think about things.)  I’ve heard theories, but they why still remains unanswered.
