Looking out of the demolished skyway. Note the big hole in the floor. The lens is too wide to keep my foot out of it… I’m hanging in the superstructure that I climbed to make this photo.
A winding flue between the ovens for Furnace 6, capped with sketchy catwalks.
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.
This skyway, built to help seal off two parts of the complex during an out of control fire, was probably too rotten to burn by the time I saw it.
Sidewalks to a boarded barracks, each making the other obsolete in the night.
This is what the complex looks like today to the bare eye. Dull, monochrome, quiet.
Looking into the main workhouse from the skyway into the annex elevator. But who care? Look at the colors!
Above my head while taking this picture was the seal of the Department of the Interior.
