Allis Chalmers

After entering through the wooden door, we saw that this building was just a shell, with no roof and partially collapsed walls. There were charred timbers, indicating a long-ago fire. I think of Allis Chalmers farm equipment, but like most industrial conglomerates, I suppose it made equipment for many uses.

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

I can't imagine the complicated mechanical device you shot. It's a fine, detailed image. It's an impressive bit of equipment.
