Blast Furnace 7 as seen from the ore yard. Imagine running up those stairs through blast furnace smoke.
The hike to the village is steep. This is looking into the valley from the halfway point.
Looking at the ghost sign from a rust-locked cement conveyor that linked the silos with a packing warehouse.
I am sure even the workers had trouble remembering which pillar hid the phone. Note the “ON” written on the electrical socket, too.
No, it’s not your Mac’s desktop, it’s a beautiful Lake Superior night. Taken from near the former Pittsburgh and Reading Anthracite Plant. You can see the frame that used to hold the lifeboat that was auctioned in 2006 to the left of the Pilot House.
