Shuttered windows on the side of one of the collapsing bonded warehouses.
…when injection molding was the new thing that everyone was experimenting with.
The Blacksmith Shop (right) was connected to the Bunk House (left) via this narrow walkway. This is likely due to the fire risk in each building. The left building had a cooking stove and furnace for heat and the right building had a small industrial furnace to repair mining equipment. A little walkway would mean that a fire on one side would be easier to fight from the other.
Goals for 1980, still tacked onto the wall.
Near the base of the mesa is a modern house, which seems to be a ranch of some sort. What a fantastic spot to live, but for the fact every rainstorm floods the arryos, muddy ditches at the bottom of gullies, making it impossible to travel.
Rivets are sexy, and this old machine has more than a fair share.
Bits and things in a pile in the corner of the smelter, the unsold chunks of industrial history that didn’t sell at an on-site auction before my visit.
A typical hallway in the rocket assembly line.
Looking out of the boarded windows in the Great Western Sugar office.
