A wide view of the steam pump room, complete with pistons (taken apart for their brass), flywheels (covered in graffiti and rust) and pressure gauges (smashed apart for fun). I guess what I’m trying to say is, I was not disappointed.
SWP4-A on the left and Viterra C on the right in a 90-degree panorama.
A few from atop the steam gauges along the western wall. The turbines were scrapped quickly after the plant closed, it seemed.
At the top of the workhouse, dust collection pipes weave through cross-crossing conveyors.
A one-of-a-kind installation in Armour’s otherwise gutted engine house.
Some parts of the doctor’s apartment in the Administration Tower were decidedly upscale. Look at the beautiful ironwork on that sink!
The turbine hall, without turbines. I guess that makes this a hall… at least it has a clock.
When it was convenient, the sugar company would pull equipment, even pipes, from one mill for another.
The top of the docks are so rotten in places that you can see the lake through the boards. In the foreground you can see the controls for the chutes, which work on a clutch.
Taken from the arm of the pocket loader–note the tree growing out of the conveyor belt. Often where you see old piles of taconite, trees are springing up. The byproducts of the pelletization process break down and make a really fertile mix, especially with all the iron content!
