A quick shot to show the mineshaft in context with the smelter. Did I mention the smelter’s stack is unreasonably gigantic?
Beside the half-demolished Thunder Bay Elevator shops and offices (brick building) are some rusting fishing boats. A little bit of SWP #7 is seen in the upper right.
An elevator is reflected in the flooded footprint of Spencer & Kellogg. These trains are in storage for the winter.

The same view in 2007. Superior, WI, some have said, is a suburb of Duluth, MN. It’s more like a sub-suburb, I would argue. It’s the industrial district that is technically in another state, one that sells beer on Sundays. Perspective is looking out of the mostly-disassembled larger (newer) elevator.
When I revisited the mine in 2013, the hoists were scrapped and sitting by the road.

In the distance, a semi truck kicks up fresh rain from the highway. As seen from the top of the steel blast door.
