This miner locker room has probably never been so clean.
Shadows of the trees from the materials yard.
Work never done.
A portrait of the second school of McConnell, built in 1937.
Looking into the Pool 8 Annex from the original Ogilvie’s elevator.
A chalkboard halfway to the headhouse is untouched since the mill closed. It still has the cheat sheets!
The side of the oldest building on the property, the former casket factory.
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.
Two signatures complement this gorgeous hand-painted sign. ‘Bowers’ from 1987 and ‘Normal’ from 1982. The blocking on the letters is still visible!
