I wish I knew what has become of this great one-of-a-kind sign that used to brag how many days the Clyde Iron factory has gone without a serious accident. Update: It’s hanging in one of the smaller venue spaces behind the bar.
In the mine offices, hooks and a board with numbers was the system to keep track of who was in the mine and who was safe.
Someone’s abandoned to-do list.
A walk-up service window on the side of an administration building of some sort. I have a feeling the buildings were color coded.
I assume this sign used to sit near the highway that snakes around the mine and town.
Between lines of Number Sixes right after sun rose behind them. This photo shows how extremely lush the grounds are that make getting around in some places impossible.
The stairs of this elevator had their landings removed long ago to keep vandals grounded.
General Mills bought Consolidated Elevator’s “D” in 1943 and renamed it “A,” though no additional elevators have followed from that firm to date. Visible on the right is the first annex, built along with the elevator in 1909.
I love that the administration building–almost 100 years old now–still carries the original name.
The old No Trespassing sign, with the Peavey logo still on it.
