Platforms and abandoned outbuildings, as seen in 2005.
I found a meth lab in this building once. (Yes, I called it in.)
Looking through a secure ward door at the destroyed rooms beyond.
The gothic landing between balcony and classroom level and the ground floor.
A closeup of one of the winding machines that found itself under a leaky section of roof.

From the loftily perspective of the crane cab, I thought about how nice it would have been to have been here when there was equipment to share the space. This begs the question, who took out the equipment?
The bottom of the tailings boom is rotten. In days when the dredge, floated, gangways connected it to shore, it seemed. You can see the size of the pontoons under the boat here.
The same view in 2007. Superior, WI, some have said, is a suburb of Duluth, MN. It’s more like a sub-suburb, I would argue. It’s the industrial district that is technically in another state, one that sells beer on Sundays. Perspective is looking out of the mostly-disassembled larger (newer) elevator.
