Challenge Company-Batavia, IL, originally uploaded by William 74.

In light of yesterday's picture of a Challenge Model 27, I give you this view of the former Challenge factory in Batavia, Illinois. It's situated right on the banks of the Fox River, and still has it's glazed brick logo in the smokestack. The building has been well maintained, and now serves as a building of office suites.

Interesting fun fact: along the river one can still see the pylons that once supported the tracks of the Chicago, Aurora, and Elgin's Batavia branch.
