The guts of the dock are connected with a long narrow hallway. Below this section are shops and labs.
One of the covered rail loading docks. All of them were overgrown and rust-clad.
A new loading shed to fill train cars.
The approach to the dock is rigidly geometric. I always thought its outline was beautiful against the lake that, by contrast, was always moving.
This is what the mine shops look like from the road between Gaastra, MI and Rogers Location (formerly Bates, MI). The community was renamed for the mine, probably under the heavy influence of M.A. Hanna.
The historic entrance of the mill, alongside the (relatively) new Great Western offices.
Note the tiled floor between the bucket conveyors and an old mill.
The remains of the site radar beside the command building.
A look upriver at the crane of the Port of Detroit, quiet for the night, and the Ambassador Bridge, always humming with Canadian traffic. Downtown Detroit is beautiful, if nobody told you.
