Exploring Dock 4 was a very different experience, since it was almost all metal.
The middle section of the smokestacks were coal hoppers, and this device would load the coal into the hoppers from the conveyor belt it rode across. The bottom section of the stacks were storage rooms while the very top were, surprise, chimneys for the power plant.
The power lines follow the street, down to the mineshaft. Everything revolved around the mine, it seemed.
A breeze and broken window has animated one of the few curtains still hanging in Nopeming as of 2015.
Beautiful doors separated the boiler room and the sugar mill. Can you imagine the gracefully curving steps in a power plant today?
The floor in this building (now demolished) was very rotten. This picture was taken through a window from very firm ground.
Power-up to cool down… would have been nice on the hot day I climbed on top of this machine.
