The flour mill (rear) and its elevators. The taller elevator was moved here in 1955, when the Harrisons bought it from Federal, who declared it surplus. The smaller elevator replaced an earlier smaller warehouse in 1926. Taken shortly after dawn. This one picture made the drive worth it, for me. Medium Format.
Blue skies and rust-pocked siding contrast the high-altitude blue sky. By the time I had worked my way back to the tram, it was sunset.
The metallic arms of the missile erector, which would stand rockets over the blast pit in the launch position. Medium Format film–cheap but excellent Fomapan 100 in a Pentax 67.
The cemetery for the old asylum is, sadly, largely unmarked. Only in recent years has there been a real effort to locate and identify the remains there.
The iron holding up the plaster ceiling is rusted to the point the weight of it is bending it right over.
A tunnel between the outside gate and the courtyard shared by the barracks.
An experimental shaft dug in the 1950s and its Hoist House.
Grand Army, as seen from a Gilman Tram grade.
Two charmers, I’m sure. This area was a coal pit for the nearby power plant.
