For some time, Purina ran a feed service out of the elevator. Inside and outside were signs of its past presence.
Workers’ lockers, strewn across Main Street, yet still out of the way.
Typical New Mexico ranch fencing. The power lines follow the rails between Springer and Wagon Mound.
One of my favorite signs, informing workers about to descend into the open-top grain bins about basic procedures. This was in ADM-Annex 1 (connected to the cleaning house via skyway), so it will never be seen again, unless the sign lands luckily when the elevator is demolished.
Construction in 2014 reveals a lost stone sign.
This door led to a now-demolished skyway crossing Minnehaha Ave connecting the brewhouse to Fermentation, also demolished.
The office building was fancy compared to the utilitarian factory behind it. My favorite part was the logo crown.
One of the large barracks. All of them are overgrown like this.
This was my first view of Harris Machinery’s property… it was strange to find what looked like a ghost town five minutes from downtown Minneapolis!
