Badger Ammunition Fire Escape Chutes

While talking about the previous post with Matt last night he mentioned that while in the military he was able to see much of the old Badger Ammunition plant in Wisconsin, and that most of the production buildings had slides like octopus arms that radiated from the buildings for a quick exodus if fire were to catch in the building.  I managed to turn up a single image showing the Nitro Glycerin building and it's numerous slides. 

The image was found on the website of a photographer named Jamie Young.
