End of an Era: Hidden Places
The very oldest incarnation of this mill as an electrical rather than steam driven one used these wierd old remote speed controls. These huge rotary switches allowed different resistances to be selected from large standing banks of metal resistors. Small motors could be used to make adjustments remotely.
In other words, back then, resistance was NOT futile... ;-)
It's how it was done over 50 years ago.
These are in total darkness in a place few even know of much less go to. I got the shot with "light painting" using an LED flashlight.
Fujifilm X-E1 and Fujinon XF 18-55mm f/2.8-4 lens.
As the steel mill where I work closes I'm getting some final shots of teh place during our last weeks of operation.
