>Our Tower-Tour Continues

18 Apr

>Looking South-Southeast, including the City-County Building (handgun carry permits, first floor), the Indianapolis Heliport, the jail and some of the railing, complete with tower-climber knots.Looking South-Southwest, the former Merchant’s Bank building (with the red-painted base of the tower that used to stand atop it, site of the city’s first TV transmitter [assuming P.R. Mallory never had theirs on prior to or during WW II]. I’ve been in there, back when there was still a tower and the last broadcast tenant was a little low-power TV station), Union Station, the bizarre painted rooftop of Circle Center Mall (itself neither circular nor in the center), the Incinerator (way out there) and the downtown power plant. –Oh, and some ghastly monstrous stadium in Brutalism-meets-Retro style. Plus the other end of the railing and another knot that trails frayed ends. H’mm, hope that worked out for ’em. As ever, clickee maketh big, with a few notes on each photo.

    >Now, now. It's not an Incinerator; it's a Mass Burner.Or so it was sold to us those long years ago along with a mess of pottage.

    >Interesting knots.The first looks like some kind of doubled up double half hitch and the second one looks like a weird constrictor knot.

    >What does it say about me that I was hoping for pictures of the connector?

    >It's a 12-pin MS connector. I can take pictures of the old ones, prolly later this week. …Just reminded me, I need my "oops" arbor for hole saws. I dunno about those knots.
