You've probably seen this one photographed to death by the locals. There's not much left in any case - but one vast rusting steel mountain in the middle of what's rapidly turning into a dreary pre-urban office park.

But ooh whoa what a doozy, just my rusting bag of tricks. The usual story - shut down in the early 1990s after failing to keep up with an evolving economy, now home to a few desultory sacks of concrete and a bit of construction machinery, evidence of a local government that can't get its act together and decide whether to follow through on the sporadic signs advertising a tour through the country's industrial heritage or just dynamite the fucker and get it over with.

Went there with a friend a few weekends ago - he's grown up in the area and remembered seeing these these things spewing fire from their massive bellies when he was a kid. We ran into one gentleman who scared the snot out of us as he climbed to the top, something he'd always wanted to do as he told us.

You can keep your rooftops. Hooray for rusty piles of industrial crap I say, they make for the best pictures.
