The flour mill (rear) and its elevators. The taller elevator was moved here in 1955, when the Harrisons bought it from Federal, who declared it surplus. The smaller elevator replaced an earlier smaller warehouse in 1926. Taken shortly after dawn. This one picture made the drive worth it, for me. Medium Format.
This was one of two skyways that went between production line offices. It’s easy to tell because it’s not reinforced for machinery to travel through it. I also like that it’s a double-decker, so to speak.
A look down the 1950s foundry building, moments after sunset.
A windmill marks one corner of GOW.
Halfway up the coal conveyor, covered in coal dust… black streaks of snot. Starting to get good.
In the corner of the foundry, this lunchroom was literally collapsing under one small leak in the roof. Tile by tile the water ate away the ceiling. Note the clock.
The city constructed a wall in the early 2000s to discourage visitors. Note the staircase is cut off, too.
A quick shot to show the mineshaft in context with the smelter. Did I mention the smelter’s stack is unreasonably gigantic?
Peering out of the porthole of the light tower, I saw the shadow of the station on the lake.
