A typical workhouse scene, captured minutes before on Fuji FP100c instant film.
Ringling’s church was built in 1914 and sits on a hill over the town.
The entry point for the painting shed on the top floor. Cars would have a few feet in between them before they entered. Separate sheds would prime and add color.
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.
Kat dancing down the trestle, which is one of the highest in the state, standing about 100 feet over the road. Mamiya 6/Portra 160
Looking through the washer that is the first stop for the dredgings.
Little crosses on the side of the church, near a broken window.
A stray cat at hunts mice along the elevator row at Inglis, MB. Film: Fuji FP100C.
Looking from one workhouse at another, with the other residents of Mill Hell falling into place as the distance grows. Across the rail yard you can see Froedert Malt elevator and Calumet.
