Several engines in varied states of disrepair were on one of the piers. This is a detail of one of them.

Welcome to all. I began blogging Retained-Images in 2004 at It is gone now.

A fine detail of this engine. I like the pieces of rust that add interest to the fading paint. Nice one.

As rusty as the whole town of Detroit... No DD's are being built now I guess, so much the worse.

History is eating its way into/out-of that for sure. Meaningful image here.
