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.
I believe this is the push car, meaning it would push the charge in the oven out the opposite side into the train car.
Standing on a caustic tank with my head out a roof hatch, I look at the sign of the last brand to be produced here.
I am not sure what this structure is, but it seems to be put together like a gold mill. It existed in 1952, and seems to be from about that period.
I was invited to watch the 4th of July fireworks atop the Kurth tower before the current owners bought the property. Every one of the 12 frames has dozens of fireworks–just look closely. The main display is from the Stone Arch Bridge, of course.
The exterior of the factory is unassuming
The Algosteel navigating Superior Entry.
Looking out upon Mill City through the lens of FLOUR, highlighted in pink and low clouds. This sign has recently been converted into LED lighting.
Superior Street, as seen from the roof of the Temple Opera Block. Below is one of the sealed sidewalk elevator hatches.
The side of a launcher, with outbuildings in the background. You can see the tracks where the roof would open before launch.
