A defunct UGG elevator in Killarney, not far from where the Harrisons (of Holmfield, MB and Harrison Milling) once operated a small elevator. Medium Format.
The Blacksmith Shop (right) was connected to the Bunk House (left) via this narrow walkway. This is likely due to the fire risk in each building. The left building had a cooking stove and furnace for heat and the right building had a small industrial furnace to repair mining equipment. A little walkway would mean that a fire on one side would be easier to fight from the other.
The windows reflect the sky. The bricks hit the ground.
Through a section of the tailings boom where mountain winds tore open the sheet metal around the conveyor, I poked my head out.
Outside the locker room without the sandwiches and beer… plenty of glass shards, though, if you feel like it.
Taconite Harbor’s main road, now overgrown and leading to nothing. Just asphalt between caved-in curbs.
Spare parts ready for this building’s reactivation.
Stained windows and sheet metal catch the sunset from across the Ohio River.
