A dead work truck rusts near an outbuilding. Everything is marked with a code. Modernity.
Vines are finding their way into the roundhouse.
Taken in the last few minutes of the day. You can tell by the way that the wall is deteriorating that the windows using to have an arched top!
Shuttered windows on the side of one of the collapsing bonded warehouses.
A familiar scene in Control Tower B, though the microphone has not been used for years.
A super-long exposure of the side of the middle of Daisy Elevator, built in 1927. The oldest silos are closest to the mill and date to 1916. They were expanded toward Superior in 1927 and 1941. The total capacity is about 500,000 bushels.
A sharp turn in the coatings department twists the steel out of sight.
These tubes would bring cement to the top of the plant for storage in the silos.
For reasons unknown, this building’s concrete was designed a little thinly. It reminds me of a Chicago, IL building constructed during WWI when concrete and steel were strictly rationed and many buildings went up with insufficient superstructures. I do not have a build date for this one yet.
