desks

Crafting Table

Minecraft reference. This is the backroom of a company that made eyeglasses the old-fashioned way. In fact, some of the lens blanks were even left behind, under the piles of trash on the desks.

Classroom

A classroom, perhaps from the days when the city owned the building.

Schmidt Brew Kettle

A brewmaster’s desk leans beside a long-disused stainless steel kettle. The staircase above goes to another level of kettles, which are visibly older.

Ballast Record

A carefully kept journal of the ballast levels in the final years that the Ford sailed Lake Superior.

Pattern Supervisor’s Desk

An example of a typical desk at Buckstaff… messy, but everything’s there. It probably looks much as it did in 2011 when the plant closed.
