A super-long exposure of the side of the middle of Daisy Elevator, built in 1927. The oldest silos are closest to the mill and date to 1916. They were expanded toward Superior in 1927 and 1941. The total capacity is about 500,000 bushels.
A photo from my first trip, although very little has changed in this area of the building except for the level of graffiti. I love skylights, don’t you?

A line of huge machines wait to be used as parts under a long-disused belt drive.
When you’re incoming’s piling up with paint chips, what’s one to do? Call in a sick?
Glowing observation windows–and someone forgot to lock a patient’s door…
A poor panorama showing where the turntable used to be for the roundhouse.
