Here is a building I was able to get close to, right on 28th Street, in front of the newer steel mills. I wonder how old it is and what its original use was. I imagine that it’s a storehouse now, but undoubtedly it was once involved in steel manufacturing. Or perhaps its fanciness means it was an administration building. The first two photos are of the front, which had been painted. The back of the building, shown in the third photo, doesn’t seem ever to have been painted. Just look at that fancy brick work. What pride people must have taken in designing and executing it.
Note added June 14: At least part of the mystery of this building has been solved. See today’s post.
