A crack in a window in a wall. What’s this doing here?
I’ve been in a lot of different mines. Some on tours, some not. If you pass through Howardsville, Colorado without going on the Old Hundred Mine Tour, you’re missing out. This is what Santiago Tunnel looked like in the 1940s when it was near the end of its life.
Sunrise over Mill Hell, and all of Kurth’s various skyways. The elevators in the foreground date to the mid-1920s, Electric Steel is behind and is a little earlier than that.
A ship passes the abandoned dock on its way to Duluth. Taconite dust stains the sides of its hull red.
These corner pilings served as bumpers… a little assurance against wind, ice, and new captains.
Employee lockers near the stage, Service Building.
Wind-battered catwalk lights between the shaft house and headframe/rockhouse building.
The powered lime hopper had a lot of levels.
Looking from abandoned to active. The end of Dock 6 often has a crane and some shacks on it, as the chutes aren’t used anymore. Instead, conveyors are installed on the land-side of the dock that fill docked vessels, making the end of the dock little more than a breakwater and a place to park repair and recovery equipment.
