The BOMARC launch buildings are spaced on a large concrete pad that looks like a parking lot. Out of view are underground pipes for fueling and cooling the rocket motors.
Wintertime is quiet, except for the planes overhead.
Sunbeams under the sintering belt. Support cradles for the wires crossing the factory are falling down.
The mill is one of the tallest buildings in the city. It’s too bad that the cupola with its big skylights and flagpole were removed.
Far away, you can see the red lights on the steam plant smokestack. To the extreme right is the beginning of the Minneapolis skyline. Paint (where this was taken) and Assembly (where the blue light is) were connected with a long skyway that carried completed trucks to be painted. I assume the device in the foreground burned volatiles from the painting process.
The moon highlights the contrails over the engine house in the middle of the night. Foreground light painted.
The huge snowfalls of 2011 brought new collapses across the buildings.
The Algosteel navigating Superior Entry.
The iconic outline of a prairie sentinel. Quintessential rural industrial architecture.
