Near the lower right corner is a vertical white cylindrical object; it looks like a water tower. I think it is part of the aircraft, or the effect of double exposure.

Another view of the ruined long building of this Cannery is at the stalingrad-info website. In its "Wartime photos....." section, look under "Photos from 'Signal' magazine": it is the 2nd photo.
