Harris Machinery rests under snow on the left. Two explorers enjoy the view.
The Atlas D command building. As Brutalist as it gets.
You can see almost ever level of the factory from this spot.
One of the clusters of elevators. Doors would open on both sides so that vehicles could be moved through them if necessary. There is only one set of stairs in the whole building.
A cracked sign at dock-level, where loading boats would be tied below the taconite conveyors. All across the surface of the concrete dock were taconite pellets, like slippery little marbles. One wrong step could put a worker in the water, which is a bad, bad place to be.
The former BESCO building in the last light of day.
On deck, looking at the door to the engine room.
Some of the earlier buildings were dressed up with brick facades.
Looking from abandoned to active. The end of Dock 6 often has a crane and some shacks on it, as the chutes aren’t used anymore. Instead, conveyors are installed on the land-side of the dock that fill docked vessels, making the end of the dock little more than a breakwater and a place to park repair and recovery equipment.
