American Can

Massive American Can factories seemed to be a staple of many larger cities and Brooklyn was no exception.  The facility of of First Avenue still stands and has been renovated and converted into office space.

As with all of the structures on the Brooklyn Terminal, I’m striving more for plausibility than prototypical accuracy. The structure on the left is Walthers American Hardware Supply. The brick structure is kitbashed from DPM modular panels.
The loading bays need to line up with a curved siding hence the angled face on the wall with the freight doors.
I was at a loss as to how to handle the signage until a friend came to the rescue with a number of prototype photos showing a variety of formats. I had some left over quarter inch tall craft letters which I glued to .020″ wire and painted.
