Industrial Patterns 5

This complexity of iron I-beams and other metalwork is from an early 20th century German steel mill, long since de-commissioned and designated a "historic site." The iron framework supported a monorail train which brought raw materials to the blast furnaces. I would have loved to see this whole complex in action, especially by night when the furnaces would glow from within like volcanic craters.
