A window for light and air pokes above the big arch in the hallway. Most of the interior ceilings were broad brick archways.
A rare door left on the workhouse. The stairs to the left led down into a flooded basement. Kodak Portra 160/Mamiya 6.
The individual ovens are skinny to allow even and fast heating of the whole interior. Numbers are cut into signs because no paint could withstand the heat or corrosive emissions from the coking process.

When the bank burned, it was demolished except for the vault, which sits behind the depot.
Just across the North Dakota border, a rusty Milwaukee Road boxcar sits where it was shoved off the mainline. The grain elevator in the background marks the tracks, which is still used by BNSF.
Looking out from what little remains of the second floor at the poor house, which was in terrible condition. No roof and no floors. Soon to be ruins.
West Elevation of the Depot. Ektar 100/Mamiya 6
The corner of the elevator… lumber armored with steel for fireproofing and water resistance.
