Shuttered windows on the side of one of the collapsing bonded warehouses.
An abandoned news stand between the concourse and ticket booths. This is one of my favorite pictures from the 2000s.
A switch for the yard engines, now on the edge of the property where nobody will find it.
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.
Note the rails in the floor that guided cars to the coating line, the side of which is lined with the windows in the center of the image.
A hole in one of the boards casts the inverse image of a tree outside across a peeling sanatorium wall.
Two versions of Detroit. One where buildings stand tall and proud, and one where they wilt under the sun. It’s an amazing juxtaposition.
Fall in line, act skinny, watch out for low hanging pipes. Don’t ask me where in the maze this was… 90% of the plant looked like this; vast rooms and catwalks with crisscrossing pipes and valves.
Outbuildings near the perimeter fence. Beyond is all ranch land.
