Breakers like this were not an uncommon sight in industrial-era Pennsylvania, as they were found at most anthracite coal mines. Their purpose was the breaking up of large chunks of coal and the sorting of the resulting pieces by size using a series of sieve-like screens. As the pieces moved through the facility on belts, they also had impurities (such as pieces of slate) removed; this dangerous, miserable work was often performed by children.
Here’s more info about this particular breaker
A grain silo?
Ah, got it: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coal_breaker This one also incorporated the elevator tower above the shaft.
Wish I could see what it looked like on the inside because of those uneven windows!
Of course that thing was destroyed in a fire, just look at it!
Customer: “how are we going to decide where to put the windows?”
Architect: “Here- take this blindfold and take these darts”
reminds of a sandcrawler…
Looks like a factory for misery.
Looks like something out of RDR2.
This gives me some TF2 Payload map vibes
