The crane on Dock 2, as seen from Dock 4 right after sunset. Notice the old light tower is warped.
The generator hall of the last power station, as seen from the gantryway.
One of my favorite night views of Fort Snelling’s so-called Upper Post, taken between snowstorms.
Looking across the spired rooftop of the Kirkbride building. In the foreground is a fire chute that contains a metal spiral slide designed to evacuate patients in case of a fire. Note the ironwork on the chimney.
This building stood on stilts until it was demolished. The top floor handled radio traffic to boats and trains. The bottom floor had locker rooms, records, and a lunchroom.
Looking at The Windy City from the top of the coal tower. The pond you see is the former ACME Coke coal yard.
The main gate, as seen in 2005. It hasn’t changed much since then.
Soft rain on Vulcan’s ashy pyre… Both of these peaks are dead volcanos, too hard to be totally washed away by storms. As a result, they seem to rise dramatically from the flat valley.
