Platforms and abandoned outbuildings, as seen in 2005.
No, it’s not your Mac’s desktop, it’s a beautiful Lake Superior night. Taken from near the former Pittsburgh and Reading Anthracite Plant. You can see the frame that used to hold the lifeboat that was auctioned in 2006 to the left of the Pilot House.
A rusting disconnect gangway. The smokestack is for a boiler, if I recall.
The pilot house, lit with the lights of Superior.
Below the factory floor is a network of hallways and tunnels, all flooded with water.
Two small generators connected to a Frick steam engine.
Taken before the Ford was towed to Duluth for scrapping.
Looking down the breakwater from the top of the lighthouse. In the haze, you can see the world’s largest iron ore docks in Allouez Bay.
The wrought iron staircase for what was the Consumer’s Brewery Brew House, as indicated by very fine cast landings with the company logo. The staircase is in bad condition; someone had run a forklift or something similar into the bottom in addition to copious vandalism and water damage. Holes in the floor, like in the upper-right corner indicate where stainless steel kettles used to be before they were scrapped.
