My first picture at Nopeming, sometime around 2004. The same year that the county stopped mowing the lawn.
The moon highlights the contrails over the engine house in the middle of the night. Foreground light painted.
C’mon and grab your friends… we’ll go to very—rusty lands…
This picture gives you the idea of how the boat-loading control rooms are set up; they lean over the dock and Lake Superior to be able to see down into the holds of the boats… important, considering how quickly it loaded the boats! An uneven load could put stress on the hull of a laker, increasing the risk it will break and sink.
A multi-family home with an attic bedroom. The staircase was unstable, to say the least.
Old hospital beds.
Sidewalks to a boarded barracks, each making the other obsolete in the night.
One of the machines left over in the underground magnetic separation plant.
The grain-centric buildings had automatic fire doors.
