The spectacular, if precarious, view of downtown Minneapolis from the roof of ADM Annex 4. Note the great messages left by various graffiti artists who made it to the spot.
The bridge here moved workers between the dock, the approach tracks, and refueling buildings.
The Cross of Loraine served as the international symbol of tuberculosis; it was traditional to find these on sanatorium smokestacks like this, which was part of the old steam plant, behind the Refractory.
This was taken before the top of the docks really started to rot-out; now this stretch past the crane is distinctly unsafe to cross. Still, you can’t beat the view of Dock #2 winding into the distance, where the approach is chopped-off before the yard used to extend.

On my second or third trip, the cross had broken in the wind.
This building was an office and lounge for engineers. It is also demolished.
Above the altar are faded murals. Here’s the Holy Grail.
