This is what the mine shops look like from the road between Gaastra, MI and Rogers Location (formerly Bates, MI). The community was renamed for the mine, probably under the heavy influence of M.A. Hanna.
Shuttered windows on the side of one of the collapsing bonded warehouses.
On the left is the 1907 elevator section and its 1926 expansion is on the right. Interesting how the century-old silos seem to be faring better. Windows provided light to the underground conveyor tunnels, which were used to bring grain out of the silos by gravity.
The company headquarters. Abandoned last time I drove past it, though it is the classiest building in downtown South Bend.
A nice view of Hamilton from the roof of the theater.
The annex casts a long shadow over its old headhouse and the former UGG (currently Vitera C) elevator. Arista 100.
The office was redder than the rest of the building.
This office, as seen from the power plant, administered the bonded warehouses. There used to be a few more of them, according to old maps and postcards.
This tree caught my eye. Note the bench swing near it. Portra 160.
