2013. As part of the Head House’s facelift, it’s gotten new windows. However, you can now still see where the conveyor-way connected this building with the elevators behind it in the upper right of the image.
The back of the castle is barely visible through the trees that have grown thick around the walls, making it look so much older.
The fantastic red elevator that is Pool #61, built 1928.
This was taken before the top of the docks really started to rot-out; now this stretch past the crane is distinctly unsafe to cross. Still, you can’t beat the view of Dock #2 winding into the distance, where the approach is chopped-off before the yard used to extend.
Looking out of the brewhouse toward the river.
A typical narrow hallway at Birtle.
Because of the dangers of storing the materials to make explosives as well as the explosives themselves, there were earthen bunkers all across the plant like this.
Looking from the brewhouse at the death of its sister building, across Minnehaha.
Shadows of distant power lines are carried to the concrete by street lights.
Algae grows where water flows/From the sawtooth roof/To the mines below/The sun climbs high/But is in no one’s eyes/A wall alone crumbles/It was no suprise
