Bottling Works, Lemp Brewery

The bottleworks, where presumably the bottles were filled with beer, is located on the far east corner of the triangular shaped Lemp Brewery grounds.To put it bluntly, the building is in horrible shape, and probably is the most deteriorated of the all the buildings on the property.The roof is collapsing, and the sky is easily viewed by looking up through the large holes in the planking.The staircase above leads down into the first floor, which was pitch black. I am not sure what was on the lower floor of the building.There are no interesting machines left; no doubt the bottling equipment was sold long ago when the brewery became a warehouse for International Show Company.It was a beautiful day to photograph the complex, as attested by this photo.In one corner, a giant pile of presumably collapsed roof timers sits underneath a blue tarp, protecting it from the rain.
