Facing Downtown (2005) 2005. This is very likely the oldest image I have on the website; I took this in the early 2000s with my first camera when I was new to the hobby. I still like it quite a lot. Similar Images ...based on the tags: black&white, clouds, the-moon... On the National Mine property are two shafts, both serving the same workings. This one seems to have gotten some upgrades in the 1960s, judging from the condition of the metal. Looking through Workhouse A from the top of a silo. When the ship loaders were added, a doorway was cut through the metal silo to make a room for the grain handling equipment. Note the dust sensor in the corner of the torch-cut archway. Before Portland-Huron Cement’s Duluth Plant was (mostly) demolished and (partly) turned into a hotel, the top of its silos gave a cinematic view of elevator row. The topmost roof of the hospital is covered in antennae and includes a star that faced the rest of the complex, now demolished. My guess is that the Capitol Hotel closed and Adler bought up some of their equipment. The bridge here moved workers between the dock, the approach tracks, and refueling buildings. A panorama of the dock buildings, before the left one was demolished. These concrete blocks were formed to be solid mounts for machinery. All the metal was scrapped in the late 1990s, leaving these modern ruins. Seagulls love them.
