The top floor of the power plant is a stunning space, one that no longer exists in present-day industrial construction, as a reader of this site noted last week.
Update: The logo on smokestack was in fact reworked from Lemp to ISCO.
I am strongly suspecting the power plant was built after the brewery closed; carefully looking for sign scars on the smokestack, I can only find the International Shoe Company logo. Surely the Lemps would have put their name on the smokestack first?
I love the steel trusses in this room, and how they were left exposed to show the structure of the building.
I have no idea what this room was used for, or how it functioned in the use of the brewery as a warehouse for shoes. Supposedly, shoes were also manufactured here as well, but I don’t have a reliable source to confirm that.
