    This place was one of the best industrial sites I saw during my time in Detroit. it was very complete even by our standards. The first story pattern stores had completely rotted through, pouring it's contents into the pattern shop below. It was a nice mix of scattered epic with hanging death above.

    The casting sheds were very large and looked as though they had changed little for a very long time. I think there would have been more to see here if only the floors were not so rotten! There were tantalising rooms along the whole first floor, unreachable due to missing floors!

    I see what you mean about the pattern stores, bet there's some great things up there. And I'm surprised about the paperwork you found, do the Americans not care for these things?

    Dunno, that stuff seemed to have rained down from the rooms above. I'm sure with a little ingenuity you could have got to what was left up there and found lots more...
