502A.jpg
"Remains of pouring and cooling building #502a at the Amotol Munitions Plant (WWI) where 6-inch shells were filled with a 50/50 mix of TNT and ammonium nitrate. The construction and layout of the building looks a bit odd with lots of thick concrete. This was done to direct the force of any accidental explosions more ‘up’ instead of ‘out’ thereby helping to protect the integrity of the surrounding plant buildings.
