Under Dock 1 Where the approach meets the dock. Similar Images ...based on the tags: black&white, trestles, wooden... This was my first view of Harris Machinery’s property… it was strange to find what looked like a ghost town five minutes from downtown Minneapolis! The people that stayed here carved bowls from the mesa itself to collect water. The workshop and parts room was full of light and meticulously sorted bolts, nuts, washers, gaskets, and all sorts of specialty hardware. Looking into the mouth of the hopper which mine carts dumped into at the top of the Concentrator. Thanks to the demolition (I’ll never say that again), the inner structure of the bins are revealed. So much wood! The whole smelter ran on gravity… elevating the various raw materials and working with them until at the bottom of the furnace, copper poured out. A pink room with very heavy doors that reminds me of the rooms at some of the insane asylums that I’ve explored. Steam pipes snake up the walls like vines, but with asbestos. One of my favorite photos of the ADM-Delmar #1 skyway, when it stood. Taken at sunset, with the reflection of the overcast sky in the remaining windows.
