The Big Dipper brought its friends into view, and the best seat is 80-feet up.
Sunset through a stained window in the headhouse made the floor feel like a heavy industrial Disney movie.
As photographed from a cement piling for Slip #3 poured in 1935, disconnected from land by erosion. How do I know the date? A pair of steamship engineers carved their initials and ranks into the wet cement!
The giant cog is missing on this machine, which turned a sugar slurry intro crystals. Green-blue stained glass makes the rusty machine glow in aquamarine.
