I spotted this while taking a short cut through an industrial area of Milwaukee (St. Paul Street in the Menominee Valley).
Currently it houses Action Heating and Cooling, but the facade remains. A bit more info on the building (with pictures) is at can be found at Wisconsin Historical Society.

In the meantime, I'll show you a work in progress. I'm currently working on a piece for a challenge that requires me to use only reclaimed/recycled materials. Here's a portion of the project, about 17 inches of handmade chain of 16 gauge steel with twisted double strands of 20 gauge steel for jump rings. Annealed...but my hands still ache. I also took steel wool to each link to bring up a bit of shine and applied Renaissance Wax to deter rusting.
Photos of the finished piece to follow (my deadline is 4/1 for the challenge), as well as other endeavors!
