Taken from the rooftop looking toward downtown, a hometown, a river town.
The UP gets a lot of snow, making exploring its old mines a special challenge in the winter. The snow is more than 6 feet deep in this picture, and firm enough to walk on.
A side door for the brick factory.
The offices were cut in half, letting the fog roll in and the photographers roll out.
Looking at the side of 4B from the roof of its car shed.
The basement of the asylum was a strange place. Take, this fireplace, for instance, in an otherwise barren room. Random cinderblock (left) has created a little room behind the fireplace. To round out the strangeness, a toilet was plumbed into the middle of the space. Note the stone foundations.
This corner of the building was the coal room, used to feed the two big boilers inside. The steam equipment has been replaced with electric, so this section may not have changed much in the past decades.
Note the rails in the floor that guided cars to the coating line, the side of which is lined with the windows in the center of the image.
A window for light and air pokes above the big arch in the hallway. Most of the interior ceilings were broad brick archways.
