The crane on Dock 2, as seen from Dock 4 right after sunset. Notice the old light tower is warped.
This ornamental stair is cast iron and used to connect all floors of the Administration building. Now it connects the first and second floor, then the third and fourth floors, with a strange cinder block and drywall barrier separating the new and old sections of the building. Note the insulation on the floor to seal heat into the lower floors that were used as offices until the hospital closed. On the corners of the staircase are lions, on the corners of the suspended section of stair are down-hanging pineapples. Set in the stairs themselves are shield motifs with slate tops.
This floor of the workhouse had corkscrew conveyors–big augers–in the floor to move material around. Most of the walls that were metal were missing, leaving the concrete structure and open doors.
This building would store and maintain warheads. It was right next to the launch pad, but the two were separated by a high mound.
I love this original brick archway, near the narrow gauge shop. Gorgeous!
A super-long exposure of the side of the middle of Daisy Elevator, built in 1927. The oldest silos are closest to the mill and date to 1916. They were expanded toward Superior in 1927 and 1941. The total capacity is about 500,000 bushels.
A buck-fifty shot for a postcard stand. Taken from the Stone Arch Bridge.
This is a 1956 furnace. It was used to forge wheels, casings, and parts for the axel shop.
Part of the unremodeled hospital, above the Service Building, where employees would stay sometimes.
