A view from the loft in the shipping/receiving building, where the crane operator would step into his cab.
A tight-winding wooden staircase leads to where the ropes are tied above the stage. I am standing next to the big old film speakers while taking this.
This is the crane that would be used to lower extra-heavy bits of copper ore into the fire of the furnace.
The mill is one of the tallest buildings in the city. It’s too bad that the cupola with its big skylights and flagpole were removed.
In most places, it may seem off for there to be a tunnel door on the top floor of a building, but Ford was that kind of place. This door from the steam plant led into a skyway and tunnel that connected to the main assembly floor.
In the mountainside are a number of air shafts, indicating where the tunnels traced under the rocky surface.
Copper poured from this furnace and was cast by the autocaster on the right into billets.
Bricks from the demolished buildings.
In the quality assurance labs there is a old safe.
