Pocket door and light switches in the upper control room, at the top of the spiral staircase.
This picture gives you the idea of how the boat-loading control rooms are set up; they lean over the dock and Lake Superior to be able to see down into the holds of the boats… important, considering how quickly it loaded the boats! An uneven load could put stress on the hull of a laker, increasing the risk it will break and sink.
One of the cupola air intakes, rattled loose by the demolition downstairs, hangs stranded on the second floor. You can see that the floor I’m standing on in this picture used to extend all the way to the right wall. The blue paint on the wall made the climb absolutely worth it.
Water damage dissolved the ceiling into sludge. Pillars remain, as do the plastic light covers, now on the floor.
A ship passes the abandoned dock on its way to Duluth. Taconite dust stains the sides of its hull red.
In the nitrating house.
Disabled forklift… I think it’s a Clark.
Outside the locker room without the sandwiches and beer… plenty of glass shards, though, if you feel like it.
