A bathroom in the rear of the ballroom that overlooks the Rose Garden.
This is the crane that would be used to lower extra-heavy bits of copper ore into the fire of the furnace.
The pilot house, lit with the lights of Superior.
For some time, tugboats were stored next to the elevator.
The arches of the Twohy building, before some of the signs and sills were painted in 2015.
Water at the bottom of the silo was perfectly clear.
Across the walls of the brick repair shop, near where men and machine entered Shaft No. 3, vines, pipes, and graffiti battle unknowingly for visual prominence.
This picture is perhaps the most appropriate in its visual depiction of how unstable the mill was. 1. Note the lack of stairs on the spiral staircase; they’re rusted and twisted apart, not simply cut off. 2. Notice the cracked concrete on the lower left corner; that was cracking as I was standing on it taking this photo, and don’t think there’s anything under that to begin to stop one’s fall. 3. You’re looking into an open elevator shaft; its safety cage is sliced away and wide open.
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.
