Power House, 2000s From the roof of the larger power plant’s Building A, Hastings, MN’s lights burn behind the smokestacks.
From the roof of the Clemens House, looking toward downtown St. Louis.
Behind a nurse’s station.
One of the last improvements to this elevator was the addition of a new scale in 1968.
Happy mine bacteria ‘chews’ away at one of the narrow gauge rail ties still embedded in the sand floor. The orange color is not a mistake of mine; it is the result of different minerals leeching into the water table and draining into the mine. Keep in mind that, about 100 feet above, is the Ford plant itself!
This rockhouse was added below the shaft to load Gilpin Tram cars.
Scrawls on the side of the beams of the ‘Pipe Shop;.
This was not always the top of the elevator.
Above the offices is this little section of factory that still has strips of wood flooring. This may be where the upholstery was cut.
