Yesterday I went to the Chemetco site in Hartfod, Illinois. Throughout the week they will be demolishing part of the refinery building on the site. The long pipe you see running across the top of the building and along the side is being removed, as well as the bag houses (the area on the left side of the image below).

I’ve known and been curious about this site for several years, so it was exciting to be invited along yesterday to witness part of the demolition. It’s a very slow and careful process, as it should be, and was impressive to watch.

While at the site, I also had a bit of time to get some more artistic shots in addition to recording the demolition itself.
