Looking down at the Port Arthur Ore Dock from Manitoba Pool Elevator #3. The conveyor belts are gone and King Elevator is in the far distance.
A broken signal light that would indicate to incoming engineers and brakemen the status of the dock deck. The streetlight-style lighting is a retrofit; originally the top of the dock would be lit by strings of lights suspended by towers on each side of the deck… a poor system according to the workers at Allouez who had the same lights.
Rogers Mine is one of the most structurally sound mines in the Iron River area that isn’t part of a museum.
A rail maintenance building. I liked the color of the tree against the peeling red paint.
Looking toward the old power house, right below one of its arteries.
No, it’s not your Mac’s desktop, it’s a beautiful Lake Superior night. Taken from near the former Pittsburgh and Reading Anthracite Plant. You can see the frame that used to hold the lifeboat that was auctioned in 2006 to the left of the Pilot House.
Looking from the brewhouse at the death of its sister building, across Minnehaha.
The Barker turning around before it backed into Tac Harbor to unload coal for Minnesota Power.
