The Wheeler Rec Center was very nice and included gymnasiums and a pool.
The neon lighthouse, seen from the top of one of the silos.
Downtown and the blight.
The wings of the church had a lot more water damage than the rest. The organ on the balcony was in decent condition when I arrived.
Platforms and abandoned outbuildings, as seen in 2005.
Between the repair shops and the stock department is this odd little structure. No, the walls are not level–it’s not your eyes. The shops slope left, the structure slopes right.
My first night on Minneapolis’ Lighthouse–now an old picture and distant memory… I still remember the exhilaration and the view of the city off one edge of the roof and the Mississippi River over the other.
Looking at the engine house (left) from atop the stoves.
Wide stairs between the ground, the mine shaft, and the dry house.
