An auxiliary crane in the corner of the foundry room.
One of two control towers that reached over the lake. The control panel here was used to move the conveyors over the ship’s hold doors, adjust flow of the taconite, and so on.
Sluice tables stretch into the darkness.
In the modern control room at the base of the white elevator tower are the electronics that ran the newer building, its rail components and boat-loading component. The superstructure permeates all spaces here, as can be seen with the crossing I-beams in the main office.
This belt-run axle ran a turbine (now gone) to blow fresh air into the mine.
I’ll remember the neon glow fondly.
There big filters helped the mill sort through the flour, for additional milling, for example.
The hoist room, before it was used for storage.
A long exposure in the crane cab at sunset throws a bit of color into the bleak yellow glows between the windows and car shaker.
