Let's go up to the top floor :)

I see the sky!

No plaster or woodwork on this floor. The top level was never finished. So all the terracotta brick has been left exposed. Actually, much of it is now on the ground. It appears vandals have knocked down many of the interior walls, leaving many bricks dangerously suspended from the ceiling.

More of those trademark windows.

Skylights

Yeah, it looks like a nuclear bomb went off outside. That's what I get for focusing on the inside.

Other stairwell entry

And the reason for the big hole in the wall is? I have a feeling that the bricks people threw from the roof came from here.

This window sash is an accident waiting to happen.

Finally, the roof.

Okay we're going back down now

Oh, that's right, I suppose you want to see the city from up here. You'll see that in the next installment.

Very nicely done, wolverine!

I see you've decided to give a more in depth tour than you (and we) first thought.

I look forward to seeing the next set! :)
