Looking from the crane-motor catwalk into the Calumet. The arm shown here with the pulleys looped through it would have been lowered and the bucket conveyor in it would throw grain to waiting ships and boats bound for flour mills and foreign lands.
Halfway up the coal conveyor, covered in coal dust… black streaks of snot. Starting to get good.
One of my favorite night views of Fort Snelling’s so-called Upper Post, taken between snowstorms.
Blue plastic siding filters the summer sun, giving the otherwise reddish-brown interior a splash of color.
The underside of the ore dock in winter. Snow drifts across the dock from the frozen lake.
The view from the larry, looking out at the overgrowing coke oven top. Papers listed the order of the charges for each oven, noting the sticky doors and persistent leaks. Emergency respirators and rescue gear was stored close, as long exposure to emissions from the rusty hatches could make worker pass out on the top of the ovens.
#67, one of the only lockers that is not crunched to the point it refuses to open. In the corner of the small office area.
Workers’ lockers, strewn across Main Street, yet still out of the way.
Days after the long-flooded basement was pumped out. Note the water lines!
