Cokeries d'Anderlues

Cokeries d'Anderlues
S.A. Cokeries et Houillères d'Anderlues first erected coke ovens in 1904 which were replaced by new ones in 1931. The works produced foundry coke and was one of the smallest and oldest coke by-product plants still operating in Belgium at the time of closure in November 2002.

A sad looking place, but marvelous shooting! Seen in "New Flickr Survivors."

8 seconds for the white veil to disappear. I still don't like seeing you here. Nice reflections though.

I'm puzzled, being used to coke ovens which produce much heat and smoke and kind of outdoors: was this an office building?

I think this building contained machinery such as compressors and/or generators. The ovens were elsewhere on site.
