In the Lime House, the sunset picked-up the last light of day to make this image. Lime is used in the beet sugar refinement process to reduce the acidity of the beet juice mixture.
Furnace #6; its catwalk and tapway. Note the lever-operated gutter-blockers.
Looking toward Mitchell from its last building.
The sexiest feature of Kurth is this steel arch over the silos on its south side. The manholes in the floor open to the silos directly, and flimsy grates might catch a hurried worker. Grates were removable so that workers could descend into the concrete tubes, so a few are missing today.

The room where all of the miners would leave their lamps to be refilled, reconditioned, repaired, etc. when they were not in use underground.
Cobbled walkways followed the assembly lines.
Happy mine bacteria ‘chews’ away at one of the narrow gauge rail ties still embedded in the sand floor.

Keep in mind that, about 100 feet above, is the Ford plant itself!
