2005. Looking at the brewhouse from the top of the staircase the goes to the tunnels.
The metallic arms of the missile erector, which would stand rockets over the blast pit in the launch position. Medium Format film–cheap but excellent Fomapan 100 in a Pentax 67.
One of the older buildings on the site, this is an old power house that provided electricity to the plant. I spent some time walking around it and believe it was fired with coal gas but had a diesel backup installed later.
The remains of the site radar beside the command building.
To the right is the spiral staircase. This building had a definite “floor problem”.
Some of the internal staircases were fitted with cages that wound round down the stairs to deter suicidal patients from taking a dive.
Looking at the huge and modern Cargill B2 from the circa-1919 Lake Superior “I”. This is a rather unique perspective of Enger Tower and Skyline.
Raab strolling where the coal and ore would be dumped by trains that traveled along the top of the concrete pilings.
This building was 99 years old when it was demolished for the coal mine.
