My favorite time to be in the brewery was sunrise. That’s the kind of light that made the brewhouse glow.
A super-long exposure of the side of the middle of Daisy Elevator, built in 1927. The oldest silos are closest to the mill and date to 1916. They were expanded toward Superior in 1927 and 1941. The total capacity is about 500,000 bushels.
Halfway up the coal conveyor, covered in coal dust… black streaks of snot. Starting to get good.

The side of a launcher, with outbuildings in the background. You can see the tracks where the roof would open before launch.
