Thanks Steve & Viv! I'll have to check out that novel when I have more time for reading. There were originally over 100 structures at this location, these two and one behind them are the only ones which remain. -- Tim

Nice shot Tim, apparently there's a plan in the books to turn these buildings into a museum...
