Volume 1, Chapter 2: Clang, Boom, and Steam
We took this picture way back when we did this Value Village shopping expedition for costumes and props. We saw this crazy steampunk-looking refinery (it's in Dartmouth, across the harbour from Halifax) down the road and drove down. Lucky for us, the refinery is near some railroad tracks which are "Enter-at-your-own-risk" rather than "This-is-private-property-so-bugger-off," so we navigated away from high voltage signs and other hazards. We knew we'd be coming back for more shots later (and indeed, we did).
The same refinery is featured in this Rock, Paper, Cynic comic.
