Ever wondered what happens when a company abandons a warehouse that used to house ten floors of cold storage? Maybe not… but since I’ve now got you thinking, check out these awesome pictures by Gary Roberts of the Fulton Market Cold Storage Company building in Chicago, they almost look like scenes from Superman’s Fortress of Solitude or even the Wampa’s Ice Cave in The Empire Strikes Back

Prepare to be amazed… I was!!

The thawing out process itself wasn’t anything too amazing, although when you watch it as a time-lapse (see the video below), it’s pretty damn amazing.

  1. Fantastic photos … just the same green as the icebergs in Antarctic, because I been there (now I got that in too) – and the video brilliant – a little more ice than my freezer had. Love the post. Love ice.

      1. Dance now until your shoes cry .. that is what I’m doing – have a fantastic evening …. go easy on the ladies. We are very fragile creatures *smile
