The Chrysler Building

The tall design, thick "I" beams and a mix of different sized pieces mark this as one of the first factory buildings constructed by the ODIS — probably in the early 1900's. OIDS was famous for is advanced metallurgy and fine casting important in fabricating complex structures like heat exchangers. During WW I the hatches for tanks were made for Chrysler Motors and the structure became known as the "Chrysler Building".
