The Engine House’s boiler, which would have been fired all day all day, virtually from the day the shop opened until the day it closed.
A sheik mustard-yellow paint scheme across the roofless engine house goes great with the industrial moss and rust.
Heavy steel doors to isolate the underground magnetic separation mill from Eagle Mine’s main tunnel.
A view of the government presses, with pages of law across the floor covered in footprints.
From an unsteady perch atop the blast furnace, the morning light began to leach into the complex below.
The elevator tower seems to have been built with expansion of the dock in mind.
The missiles were stored without fuel, to help prevent mishaps. This is the fuel pumping building and one of the tanks.

From the slip where grain boats would tie for loading and unloading, the unloader juts in a modernist-architectural way that is oddly visibly satisfying. Inside that white building is the retracted boat unloader, more or less a long and sturdy conveyor attached to a joint and crane motor. There used to be four loaders that looked like simple tubes with cranes and ropes attached hanging from this side of the elevator. All that remains of those is one fixture on the white building (not visible here) and the frame of one on the elevator proper, visible in the upper-middle of this image, to the right of the unloader apparatus.
